Maricopa City Manager Brenda Fischer

City Manager Brenda Fischer, who filed a complaint May 25 against Maricopa City Councilman Alan Marchione outlining allegations of inappropriate workplace behavior toward herself and other employees, said she was cut out of the investigative process.

“My response to this report is I did not get the respect from this investigative process to have my statements included in this report and I’m offended by that,” Fischer said Wednesday night, the day after the report was presented to the city council.

She said she was telling her side now in response to remarks Marchione made in a previous story.

“I am speaking out because my comments weren’t included in the report (presented to the council) and I wanted my comments on the record as well.

“What (Marchione) said in the article prompted me to respond,” she said.

Fischer said she “re-iterated what was told to me” by employees and she “did not edit, did not embellish” anything in the complaint.
