Loudoun Assessor Files Suit Over Dismissal
Kaufman, fired in June, alleges a conspiracy to push him from the job.
Former Loudoun Assessor Todd Kaufman has filed a lawsuit against three county employees, alleging that they conspired to oust him from him job, according to a story published today in the Washington Post.
Kaufman, hired in 2005, was escorted out of the County Government Center in April, placed on administrative leave, and then fired during the Board of Supervisor’s first meeting in June. No reason was ever given publicly for the firing, other that it related to issues with personnel.
It was no secret within the county government that Kaufman butted heads with some of the other department heads and had been a long-time critic of the Loudoun Board of Equalization, which often overturned his office’s assessments.
