Yucca Valley, Ca.- OPINION- This is the start of a New Year. Let us move forward to an era of transparency of our local government driven by local Blogs and citizen watchdog reporters. The Town hired Staff need to be reminded they are paid by our tax dollars and work for “We the People.” The elected officials need to be transparent and held accountable to the citizens. Did any candidate run on any platform besides Dawn Rowe’s No Taxes?
This elected/appointed Yucca Valley Town Council have no experience sitting on the dais except Councilman George Huntington re-elected for four more years with over 12 years as a Planning Commissioner. This is no reflection on each individual as they are all very nice persons. It is my opinion, that ALL are lacking any spine to stand up to employee Town Manager Mark Nuaimi who is making all the decisions due to their lack of experience.
As pointed out in two recent posts, Nuaimi has a problem with his unchecked spending spree and hiring a politician to be a Town manager isn’t really translating well for Yucca Valley. Sources>>>Link # 1 and Link #2
I asked the question, “Where are Nuaimi’s performance evaluations for January 2011, 2012 and 2013?”
His response was: “As with every public agency, performance reviews are done in closed session. They are a personnel matter and are not conducted in open session. Any adjustments to employee contracts are made in public.”-Yucca Valley Town Manager Mark Nuaimi.
I ask, “Should Mark Nuaimi, paid approximately $20,000.00 per month total compensation, be DELETED as Yucca Valley Town Manager?”
