Sexual harassment claim dropped against ex-Walker official Manny Perez

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A sexual harassment claim has been dropped against the head of a job training agency in Milwaukee who used to be in the governor’s cabinet.

A Milwaukee County court commissioner has thrown out a harassment claim against Manny Perez. A request for a temporary restraining order against Perez was also rejected.

Perez is now the general manager of Esperanza Unida. A female volunteer in that agency accused Perez of harassment – a claim that Perez denies.

The woman also has a mental health clinic in the same building where Esperanza is located. She has asked officials to review the court commissioner’s decisions.

Perez joined Esperanza Unida about a year after he left Governor Scott Walker’s administration. He was the state’s Workforce Development secretary for less than five months.
