Weldon resigns from position as risk manager

Mohave County Risk Manager Richard Weldon has resigned.

County Public Information Officer Darryle Purcell confirmed Wednesday morning that Weldon had resigned June 24.

Weldon was suspended and escorted out of the County Administration Building in March. County officials have declined to discuss why he was removed from the building stating it is a personnel matter.

When asked if Weldon had given a reason for his resignation, Purcell said the county does not comment on personnel matters.

Purcell did say that Weldon worked for the county from 1992 to 1994, left and then returned in 1999. He took the position of County Risk Manager in 2006.
