Stepan’s husband discusses probe

-A A +A

With assistant on leave and administrator in D.C., police chief is in charge

By Carol A. Clark

As the investigation into allegations lodged against Los Alamos County Administrator Tony Mortillaro by Assistant County Administrator Diana Stepan enters its second week, Stepan’s husband is speaking out about how his wife is holding up. She has been on paid administrative leave since an independent investigation of her allegations was launched Sept. 13.
“Since this matter has become public, Diana has received much support, via telephone, e-mail and mail from individuals around the community and at the county, for which I know she is very grateful,” Tom Stepan said. “Although I am familiar with the matter at hand, I choose to respect the investigative process and not discuss details. At this point in time, I have put my faith and trust in the investigative process, which is currently underway. I assure you that Diana is on the right side of this matter, as many already know. If the investigation is independent and thorough, the ‘report made public’ as stated by the county council chair, and if in fact ‘all levels of county government must meet the highest standards of conduct’ as was also recently stated by the council chair, then I sincerely believe that council will unanimously and appropriately resolve this matter.”
