Anderson mayor denies harassment claim

January 5, 2011

Anderson Mayor Kris Ockomon denied allegations of sexual harassment during a news conference Tuesday afternoon. A city employee, Teresa Spencer, filed a complaint with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission claiming the mayor made verbal sexual advances toward her. “I adamantly and unconditionally deny all such allegations,” said Ockomon. “I have never engaged in any behavior with any person which could in any way be remotely construed as sexual harassment.” Spencer, who filed the complaint in 2009, could not be reached for comment.
