Helper Western Mining and Railroad Museum director resigns

Helper mining and railroad director Sue Ann Martell resigned on Dec. 9 amid a state audit. The situation involves allegations flying from the former museum director as well as members of the Helper City Council. Martell claims that her work environment had become hostile and that she had concerns about appropriations of museum garnered funds.

Helper Mayor Mike Dalpiaz confirmed the ongoing audit, but maintained that Martell's allegations were false.

"She voluntarily terminated her employment and asking someone questions does not make their work environment hostile," said Dalpiaz in a telephone interview Thursday. "There is however, an ongoing state audit concerning the museums finances."

Several members of the museum's volunteer staff have also reportedly resigned along with one confirmed member of the board of directors. The situation has caused the museum to close for an indeterminate amount of time.

Helper councilmembers P.J. Jensen and Dean Armstrong commented on the issue which will be reported in the Dec. 16 edition of the Sun Advocate.
