HARRISBURG MAYOR SERVED OVER WRONGFUL TERMINATION CLAIM

A former city employee is suing Harrisburg Mayor Wanda Williams.  Nate Spriggs was hired as the city’s public works director by former Mayor Eric Papenfuse in 2021.  In the newly filed lawsuit, Spriggs says he was pressured by the current mayor to give preferential treatment to her relatives and was fired when he refused.  A spokesman for the city says Mayor Williams “looks forward to presenting her defense” in court.
