In its June 25th meeting, the Mt. Juliet City Commission considered an ethics complaint filed against Mayor Elam by former Mayor Mack. The complaint filed by Mayor Mack suggested that Mayor Elam had encouraged city employee Kathy Reitz to file a sexual harassment complaint against former Public Works Director Hatton Wright in order to avoid being fired. According to Mayor Mack, Kathy Reitz’s husband, John Reitz had called him and stated that they now felt they had been used by Mayor Elam.
Two city commissioners voted to investigate the complaint. Two city commissioners voted to dismiss the complaint as unfounded. Mayor Elam joined the two commissioners and voted to dismiss the complaint against her.
No conflicts of interest here. Move along. Nothing to see.
