In wide-ranging executive session, Glenwood council discuss county commissioner, sheriff and enforcement of health orders

Post Independent (Glenwood Springs): “A minor COVID update” during a Glenwood Springs City Council executive session turned into a sometimes heated discussion that touched on county commissioners, Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario and enforcement of public health orders.

The nearly 45 minutes of rancor resulted in councilors voting at the May 21 meeting to call for the resignation of one of their own: Councilor Tony Hershey.

At the May 21 meeting, six councilors called for the at-large councilor’s resignation and alleged Hershey, among other things, “divulged sensitive and confidential comments” from the May 14 executive session. The letter, read into the record by his fellow council members on May 21, did not specify what Hershey had “divulged” from executive session.
