Still no comment on status of Mammoth Town Manager

David Wilbrecht

Mammoth Town Manager Dave Wilbrecht

After two closed sessions with Town Manager Dave Wilbrecht and an item that called for discipline, dismissal or release of a public employee, the Mammoth Town Council had no action to report.

Mayor Matthew Lehman told Sierra Wave Media Thursday night that there was no action in the afternoon closed session with Mr. Wilbrecht. The Mayor said he “kind of expected something,” but he declined to be more specific. Mayor Lehman also said that the Council would meet again in closed session on Monday. He said he anticipates the meeting will include the Town Council and their legal staff.

When asked directly if Town Manager Wilbrecht were leaving or being asked to leave, Mayor Lehman said he could not comment due to Brown Act restrictions on the closed sessions.

Although usually reliable sources say that the Town Manager is out, there is no confirmation of that. Town Council members continue to say they can not comment, and Mr. Wilbrecht has not returned our calls.

@ SierraFan – In my 30 years of corporate experience with international organizations, I can tell you that I wish I had a dime for all of those “climbers” like MMM that I’ve seen come and go. Throwing confusing and boring figures after figures, numbers after numbers, and graphs after… Read more »

The problem here seems to be that Dave is pretty well liked for what we know of him and MMM isn’t because she’s the one who had the responsibility to tell it the way it is. He get’s my vote! MMM has done the hardest job of all which is… Read more »

It seems to me, that unlike Wood and Eastman, Dave Wilbrecht was nowhere in sight when the airport mess reared its ugly head. He was busy running Mono County, and doing more than an adequate job at that (probably the reason he was hired for the town job in the… Read more »

Well, even if Dave didn’t do a great job, MMM is not going to be any better. Dave was never even given a fair shot of success, with the clowns on the council and the awkward two-headed town manager system. How can you lead when no one is in charge?

The fish always stinks the worst at the head. If anybody has to be replaced and quickly, its the elected bozos who wield all the power, marginalize good people, and create a hostile work environment just begging to be sued. If I were Dan Watson, I’d be preparing for an… Read more »

Then we’ll be looking for you to run for council next time around. What you fail to realize is no one wants that thankless job, so your desire to have them replaced is pointless when there is no one willing to replace them! The town voted for the idiots (Eastman… Read more »

The councilmen know perfectly well that two of them ran unopposed for their jobs. They also know they can act with complete impunity. It seems that their next step is to put a number-cruncher, (who would make an okay finance director – not a CAO) lives in another town, and… Read more »

Lets see… Mono… TOML… INYO is in a downword spiral ( how long before there is a change in administration there). Maybe a complete shake up is just what this great valley needs…

Two town managers, one town… Do the math. This is the same guy who blundered blindly through a debauched BANKRUPTCY costing Mammoth 49 MILLION dollars +++. The only thing he negotiated well was his own contract. He is a bureaucrat, pure and simple. At 300+K a year, his only concern… Read more »

Lehman and Raimondo would be the LAST power-freaks I’d trust. They are banking on total apathy from the citizens of Mammoth, and apparently could care less that good people are being put through their meatgrinder. This is ultimately going to cost the town more and more $$$ in ways you… Read more »

Rumor has it that there are many more employees ready to submit their resignations if MMM is hired as the new TM. Maybe it’s time to start over and hire someone who cares.
