Port: Democratic-NPL executive director Tyler Hogan placed on administrative leave due to 'HR matter'
"It's kind of an HR matter so I'm apprehensive about providing details as there is a process that is ongoing," party chairman Patrick Hart said.
MINOT, N.D. — According to an email sent to Democratic-NPL party leaders last night, Tyler Hogan, the party's executive director, has been placed on administrative leave.
"This email is to inform you that Tyler Hogan has been placed on administrative leave as of this afternoon. We will be working as a leadership team to resolve this situation throughout the week," the email from Chairman Patrick Hart to members of the party's executive committee states. "As this is an HR matter my words will be purposefully brief, but please know there is a plan and is being executed. We will to provide more information before the end of the week as this is resolved."
I obtained the email from a source in the Democratic-NPL.
Hart declined to comment on the matter when I reached him for comment.
"It's kind of an HR matter so I'm apprehensive about providing details as there is a process that is ongoing," he told me. "That's pretty much going to be my statement."
Several members of the Democratic-NPL I spoke to, including former candidates and local district leaders, told me they had no knowledge of this situation prior to Hart's email. Some of them learned of the matter only when I spoke to them about it.
Hogan has served as executive director of the Democratic-NPL for about a year. Prior to that, he served as the party's political director.
A call to Hogan's cellphone seeking comment went directly to voicemail.
