LARAMIE, Wyo. — A former Laramie mayor who was recently hired for a city management job has entered a lawsuit in which the city is suing a newspaper and a city councilor over their efforts to get access to the former mayor's personnel records.
District Judge Jeffrey Donnell has granted a request from former mayor Jodi Guerin to enter the lawsuit.
The city sued after the newspaper and Councilor Joe Vitale requested information about Guerin's qualifications. She was hired as city recreation manager in March at a salary of $62,000 a year. The city is asking for the judge to declare whether it has to release the information.
Guerin requested to get into the lawsuit saying she wants to protect her interest in keeping the job.
