SOUTHAMPTON - Southampton's former affirmative action officer says after working hard to fight racism and intolerance in the workplace for others, her own rights were violated.

According to Darlene Troge, she was unexpectedly fired by the Town of Southampton last summer when the current administration came in. Troge says she still doesn't know why she was let go and has filed a formal complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights.

The state has not yet assigned an investigator to Troge's complaint, but she is hoping that an investigation will take place and finally bring her answers.

The Southampton Town Supervisor's Office has declined to comment on the complaint and referred News 12 Long Island to an attorney handling the case.
