OC CEO Tom Mauk Resigns

Tom Mauk

Following a third closed session meeting to discuss the employment status of Orange County CEO Tom Mauk in the wake of mishandled Carlos Bustamante sexual harassment investigations, The Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to accept Mauk’s resignation effective August 3rd. Supervisors, with the exception of Supervisor Nelson decided to appoint current CFO Robert Franz as Acting CEO.

Under the resignation settlement reached with the board Mauk will receive a total severance package of $270,000. This is less than he was due under contract. Mauk will however have all legal fees covered by the county related to any of his actions as CEO.

    “Mauk will however have all legal fees covered by the county related to any of his actions as CEO.”

    Judges have the final say on whether taxpayers have to pay legal bills of current and former employees, NOT the board of supervisors or county counsel. But, watch for a board of supervisors agenda item to retain outside legal counsel. This thing continues to unravel and will continue through the hall of administration.

    Just wait until the US Justice Dept. has FBI agents doing the interviews and board of supervisor members and their staffers begin appearing in front of a federal grand jury (RICO and “honest services” violations). Could the board chair’s fat pension be at risk? Will he get an extended vacation in Colorado? Stay tuned!

    Thomas Mauk, is a party, as are MANY OC Officials, in Erin Baldwin’s Section 1983 Civil Rights Case in District Court. JUST YESTERDAY THE U.S. SUPREME COURT ISSUED A NOTICE OF CERTIORARI to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in connection with this case. The County of Orange is going to be under a microscope.
