San Bernardino County executives have come down hard on one of their own employees who also operates a local political blog.
A blog popular with readers, but not county leaders.
Sharon Gilbert, an almost thirty-year county employee, has taken on county government with great success through her website www.iePolitics.com. A widely-read blog in Southern California’s Inland Empire, which consists primarily of San Bernardino County and Riverside County.
Ms. Gilbert has a network of sources that aid her in routing out issues with local governments and exposing problems. A resource that has contributed to the blogs success.
However, Gilbert has paid a steep price for her crusading.
More than a year ago, at the direction of ousted county administrative officer Mark Uffer, county human resources officers overrode a physicians off-work order and pulled the plug on Gilbert’s disability benefits coverage.
An off-work order, which had the concurrence of a county-approved physician.
