El Dorado County

Recently El Dorado County (CA) Employees have begun to speak up about a culture of bullying. The most impressive example comes from Mike Applegarth, who does a great job making the business case and calling for workers to be protected.

The Board of Supervisors seem prepared to act and have an obvious respect for Mr. Applegarth. It becomes more difficult since the main perpetrator, Auditor Controller Joe Harn, is an elected official, making him seemingly immune from normal employee evaluation or punishment.

    This is an unauthorized post by the County of El Dorado, politically modivated, and a misuse of public funds Contacted WBI, someone in BOS “funded” this program and they can do nothing. WBI tried to contact County Human Resources, but were ignored.

    A Grand Jury investigation should be initiated.
