Auditor/treasurer said what?

said what?
As I read the Nov. 19 article, "Employment ordeal," I found a very disturbing statement made by our Cottonwood County Auditor/Treasurer Donna Torkelson.
She said, "I oppose withdrawing of the letters of resignation. There's a difference in employees in good standing and one with disciplinary actions."
Since when is it legal to discuss private information pertaining to what's in an employee's personnel file in an open county commissioners board meeting? Not good!
You talked about "grounds for termination." I believe you just found it.
I am not sure about this, but you may have crossed the line of no return.
