Completed Douglas County commissioner probe not being released publicly

Colorado Community Media: A monthslong investigation into a Douglas County commissioner by her colleagues wrapped up last week but the full results will not be released publicly.

The commissioners met in an executive session July 26 to discuss the investigative report about Lora Thomas, which cost about $17,000 in legal fees to produce. 

When they came out of the closed-door meeting, Thomas said she wished to see the report released to the public. In a board statement posted later that day, the county called the report “privileged & confidential” and said it wouldn’t be released. 

In the past, commissioners have voted to allow similar documents to be made public.
