Syracuse, N.Y. - The newly hired assistant director at the New York State Fair was fired Wednesday for using lewd comments at the fairgrounds in Geddes, according to the state Department of Agriculture and Markets.
"He was dismissed from his position because he created a hostile work environment, for which this administration has zero tolerance," said Ag & Markets spokesman Joseph Morrissey.
Morrissey would not expand on the types of comments or whether they were directed at other state workers. Morrissey said Gustafson's position has not been filled.[Syracuse.com]
