Group doubles down on calls for Utah County Commissioner to resign

Local News

PROVO, Utah (News4Utah) – Utah County Commissioner Greg Graves left Tuesday’s commission meeting early, just before the group Alliance For A Better Utah denounced him and called again for his resignation. 

Graves faces allegations of workplace bullying and sexual harassment, according to a report by an independent workplace investigator. 

The report alleges a female complainant claimed Graves sexually harassed her, and 14 witnesses reported Graves created a “negative” work environment. 

The report found no eyewitnesses to the alleged harassment to corroborant the complainant’s statement, however multiple witnesses did claim he retaliated against her later. 

“Workplace retaliation is certainly not something we would expect from an elected official,” said Katie Matheson, spokesperson for Alliance For A Better Utah. “Taxpayers should not be subsidizing workplace harassment.”

Matheson publicly called for his immediate resignation Tuesday. 

Graves makes a reported salary of $168,000 annually. He has said he will not resign, but he also will not seek re-election. 

Graves could not be reached by phone or at his office following the Commission meeting Tuesday.

The Utah County Republican Party and some of Graves’ fellow commissioners are also calling on him to resign.
