BREWER — It doesn’t appear that any charges were filed but a candidate for the Brewer school board was once fired for sexual harassment.
Troy Richardson is one of three Brewer residents running for two seats on the Brewer School Committee.
He worked as a corrections officer at the Hancock County Jail for nearly two decades until he was fired in 2016 by members of the Hancock County Commissioners.
According to the minutes of the June 7, 2016 commissioner’s meeting, Richardson was terminated “on the grounds of sexual harassment.”
Shortly after he was fired, he started Bangor Private Investigations Inc.
Richardson said Friday that he had no comment.
He is running against previous board member Benjamin Umel and incumbent Cynthia Small.
