Erie denies documents in mayor investigation

ERIE — The Erie Board of Trustees is refusing to turn over some of the emails exchanged with town attorneys to a special prosecutor investigating Mayor Joe Wilson for alleged ethics violations.

The board said Tuesday the documents are protected by attorney-client privilege.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, questions arose after Wilson tried to evict a tenant from a home he manages in order to sell it.

The tenant, Karol Hopper, called police on the mayor and he was served with a restraining order.

Wilson has said his dealings with Hopper are a private business matter and have nothing to do with his office.
