PUD general manager charged with misappropriation of funds

sheriff

(Press release from Mono District Attorney)

In early April 2012, the District Attorney’s Office was alerted to an allegation of misappropriation of funds from the Bridgeport Public Utility District.  The District Attorney’s Office opened an investigation which revealed that former General Manager Cheryl Goode issued herself numerous unsubstantiated payments.

An arrest warrant charging misappropriation of public funds was sought, and on May 17, 2012, Mrs. Goode turned herself in at the Mono County Jail. Mrs. Goode posted the bail amount of $25,000.00 and is due to appear in the Superior Court, County of Mono on June 5, 2012 to face charges of misappropriation of public funds.

Having lived in Mammoth for 5 years, I can honestly say I’ve never heard any Mammoth resident comment one way or the other re: their personal feelings about the citizens of Bridgeport.
This must be some sort of cultural myth that goes way back when.

County employees beating each other up.
Bridgeport citizens stealing money.
North County with open hatred for anybody from South County.

I think it’s a stretch to say you know how “most in Mammoth feel.” If each of us individuals made it a point to stop judging each other based on location, geography, etc. what a happy world it would be.

No reason to get nasty Wayne Deja.
This is not a black-or-white issue at all.

There are those who prefer a larger selection of dining, lodging, recreation, movies, theatre, concerts, shopping …

Others clearly are content doing the camping thing.

This is merely a different strokes for different folks thing.

Too much time on their hands, it seems to me.

Yeah as opposed to all of the child molestors and embezzlers in Mammoth. Every where has some bad folks or folks that make bad decisions. It is not a reflection on the entire town OR ITS PEOPLE

Per capita, a lot of people living in Bridgeport (fairly or unfairly) have developed the reputation of angst-ridden Tea Party types and by-and-large have an obviously nasty attitude towards things and strangers outside their town limits. One wonders if the entire 875 people of Bridgeport have reunions, weddings and anniversaries… Read more »

Things are booming so much in Bridgeport that the population has been on the decline for years.

Today’s lesson: Study the meaning of Red-neck Arrogance and at least read a book or something.

Wayne, I am not sure if you have heard about this, but they have skiing in Mammoth. They sell over a million tickets a year. It is one of the largest ski areas in the country and often has the longest ski season with the most snow. I could be… Read more »
