Weld County commissioners discuss fellow commissioner, allegations in private

The Greeley Tribune: Weld County commissioners on Monday went into private, executive session to discuss a county employee’s accusations of harassment against Commissioner Sean Conway.

All five commissioners, county attorney Bruce Barker and a human resources official for the county attended the session about 10 a.m. Monday, at the end of the commissioners’ regular meeting.

It’s not clear what was discussed in the executive session, but the session also included a representative from Mountain States Employer Council, which conducted an outside investigation into the harassment allegations. Further, the commissioners’ motion to go into executive session referenced a document prepared by that organization.

The Tribune has requested that document, and is awaiting word from the county on whether it will be released.

Conway is alleged in the initial complaint to have yelled and cursed at a county employee, who later resigned.

Commissioner Mike Freeman told The Tribune previously the employee had scheduled a work session while Conway was out of town. It was a work session Conway wanted to attend, and Freeman said Conway became angry the session was scheduled while he was gone. In a call with the employee, Conway is said to have screamed at the employee for several minutes in a profanity-laced tirade before the employee hung up on Conway.
