Sacramento City Councilman Allen Warren says a sexual harassment claim against him has been rejected by the city and the woman who made the claim has withdrawn the allegations.
In a statement, Warren said, “The City conducted a thorough investigation, with which I cooperated fully. The City rejected the claim, and the allegations have now been fully withdrawn. I can appreciate, and in fact share, the frustration of City residents that for the reasons stated, the results of the investigation have not been made public. With today’s actions, we may all move forward to fully focus on the issues facing District 2 and the City. In this spirit, and out of respect for those involved, I do not intend to make any further statements about this matter.”
The complaint was filed last summer by Warren's former Outreach Coordinator, Delia Chacon.
City Attorney James Sanchez also issued a statement that reads, "The City has received a dismissal of the claim against councilmember Warren and the City. That letter withdraws all of Ms. Chacon’s claims and speaks to all the issues presented in her claim. The City has taken the necessary due diligence steps, including conducting an investigation with the cooperation of councilmember Warren. With the withdrawal the matter is concluded.”
