Supervisor Gibson sneaks girlfriend back in office?

Supervisor Bruce Gibson has brought his legislative assistant and mistress back to work for him in his office, several county employees said.

These employees contend Gibson is attempting to bring Cherie Aispuro back to work at his side without public exposure.

Gibson’s adulterous, long-term affair with Aispuro— his legislative assistant of six years — had been slated to cost county taxpayers $68,870 in annual salary plus benefits for a parallel county position she was offered by the county administrator.

Since November, after Gibson admitted the affair and claimed he was planning to file for divorce from his wife, Aispuro has worked in the county clerk’s office at almost double what her co-workers are making for the same work. Meanwhile, Gibson has been operating without an assistant.

A secretary for the supervisors’ office, Kristi Gutierrez, said she is unaware if Aispuro is again serving as Gibson’s assistant. When asked if Aispuro had been in Gibson’s office Wednesday, Gutierrez affirmed, saying that Gibson and his friend had spent time in Gibson’s office.

County Council Rita Neal said that today Aispuro is working in the county clerk recorder’s office.

When asked if Aispuro is going back and forth between serving as Gibson’s legislative assistant and working in the clerk’s office, Neal said, “I am not at liberty to discuss that. On the record, Aispuro’s position in the clerk’s office has always been temporary.”

Calls for confirmation to County Administrative Officer Dan Buckshi and Human Resources Director Tami Douglas-Schatz were not returned.

Cherie Aispuro was appointed by Gibson as his legislative assistant, an at-will job that concludes when the elected official leaves office. After news of the affair with Gibson became public, the county offered Aispuro the new job.

    I just sent Gibson a dime so he can buy a stupid paper bag to ware on his stupid head. Forgive me; I just returned from the store to see my stupid reusable bags in my stupid laundry room. I’m tired of being led by stupid people and I will not be bullied the rest of my stupid life.

    It’s time for our elected officials to quit playing the “Hokey Pokey” and start doing what they are being paid to do.

    This will be my last comment here for this article. People can disagree with whatever I wrote, I don’t care. This is information that came to me and passed along.

    More will come out about Gibson soon, and it won’t come from me and the facts won’t be debated. Keep up the good work CCN!

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 44 Thumb down 8
