In May of 2022, at the direction of the Board, the UWSA Chief Operating Officer engaged legal counsel to independently investigate allegations that current UWSA President Kirt Hayer had violated UWSA elections bylaws and policies while running for office.
The allegations were submitted in three complaints received in March of 2022.
After a thorough and exhaustive process, the investigators have determined that one of the complaints was dealt with appropriately by the Elections Accountability Board. Regarding the other two, one was based on an unsubstantiated claim where investigators found no proof of the UWSA President trying to coerce a candidate to drop out of the election as alleged.
The second allegation of racist comments was unfounded, which was confirmed by the subject of the alleged comments.
UWSA President Kirt Hayer is fully exonerated of these allegations. This concludes the investigation.
