Yankton County Commissioner Email Privileges Suspended

Following action after an executive session Tuesday night by the Yankton County Commission, the email privileges of Commissioner Gary Swensen have been revoked.

Commission Chair Cherie Loest says county employees are held accountable for their use of county resources including computers and the email system.

Loest says the emails from Swensen included inappropriate cartoons and unfounded allegations against other commission members.

Loest says members of the Yankton County Commission have to be held to a high standard regarding their public behavior.

Loest says Commissioner Swensen’s email privileges have been revoked indefinitely.
