Interim manager John Tooker assisted in the hiring of Richard Warne in Twentynine Palms AND Mark Nuaimi in Yucca Valley. We all know how hiring those two turned out and the firings were very costly. Nuaimi’s name dropping of Congressman Paul Cook at the time of his interview (and their mutual donations to each others political campaigns), may have clouded the decision making process of then Yucca Valley Mayor Chad Mayes…who is now Supervisor Rutherford’s Chief of Staff and now…a candidate for Assembly.
Pssst! How about hiring Finance Director Curtis Yakimow as the next town manager? He knows where all the dead bodies are buried…I mean, where the financial “razzle-dazzles” are hidden AND he is local!!
