Sitka Assemblyman Sued Over Debt

    Sitka, Alaska (KINY) - Aaron Bean is the one being sued by a businessman; Bean is running for Mayor in today's election.

    He was sued earlier this year by Connor Nelson, who seeks to be repaid over $135,000 in loans and vendor payments he allegedly made to Bean.

    The Sitka Daily Sentinel reported that Nelson claims Bean refused to pay down the loans given to his company Gren Leaf, which operates a marijuana business in buildings owned by Nelson.

    Bean denied the claims in court filings.  He said Nelson beached their contract.  He added that Nelson agreed to sell him the two buildings where marijuana is grown.

    No trial date has been set for the civil suit.
