Controversy over how to keep him on the payroll 


Disgust is still a valid emotion

Bertotti gets $19,000 in "HUSH" money ?

He resigned. That means he QUIT !!!!!!!

In Lassen County you give hush money when you have to get rid of someone that has first hand knowledge.

Frank Cady of the LMUD ilk, was paid $150,000, Evelyn Twitchell, of LMUD ilk , was paid over $100,000, Ray Luhring of LMUD ilk was paid $26,000. The list is very long in Lassen County politics

Ooops, Lassen County CAO Tom Stone wants to act as interim Economic Development Department head

This will not sit well with Supervisor Jack Hanson's brother-in-law Joe Bertotti

Lassen County CAO Stone and new County Supervisor Wosick Better take a REAL CLOSE LOOK AT Joe BERTOTTI FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS

The Lassen County Economic Development Department is a "Dysfunctional Branch of County Government"....what an understatement.

[not too many people didn't know about the corruption in that Department?  ????????]

County Supervisor Jim Chapman wasn't the only Supervisor that abused this Department and knew about Director Bertotti's activities since day ONE. Was that faux "shock" or what?

The Lassen County CAO should demand a Grand Jury investigation


Lassen County CAO Tom Stone believes the spending irregularities were intentional  [Note Settlemire and Kettleson's recent departures from Lassen County........]
