    MUSCATINE, Iowa–Feb. 17, former Muscatine City Administrator Gregg Mandsager sued the City of Muscatine, Mayor Diana Broderson, Council Members Kelcey Brackett, Nadine Brockert, Osmond Malcolm, and former Council Member Santos Saucedo for civil conspiracy, disability discrimination, interference with contract, vindictive conduct, and wrongful termination. Mandsager has requested a civil jury trial. The city responded to the suit March 25 rejecting the charges on the grounds of lack of evidence.

    On Dec. 5, 2019, the sitting city council voted to terminate Mandsager’s contract four to three, with Brackett, Brockert, Malcom, and Saucedo voting in favor of removing him. Brackett provided City Attorney Matt Brick with, “lack of confidence in his ability to do his duties,” as the reason for the Council’s decision to terminate his contract.

    Brackett had originally requested the Council discuss Mandsager’s termination at the Nov. 7, 2019 city council meeting, but requested to table the motion because of a delay in receiving Mandsager’s annual performance report and because he had requested a leave of absence under the Family Medical Leave Act. When Mandsager’s report still had not come back and Mandsager himself had not returned from his leave, the council chose to proceed with voting on his removal. At the Jan. 2, 2020 Muscatine City Council Meeting, a motion to reinstate Mandsager failed after receiving no second.
