ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration is terminating a deal it made with state Treasurer Tim Eichenberg’s office, claiming that Eichenberg has made inappropriate comments to and about state employees.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1O57V8A ) that State Personnel Office Director Justin Najaka in a September letter to Eichenberg, said the agreement to provide human services assistance to the treasurer’s office will end Oct. 15.

Najaka has accused Eichenberg of making sexist remarks to staff and contractors for the State Personnel Office, which is managed by Martinez’s appointees, and commenting on the race of treasurer’s office employees.

Eichenberg in a written statement denied the allegations, calling them a person attack.

Najaka also cited the treasurer’s lack of communication with Personnel Office regarding personnel matters in canceling the agreement.
