On Thursday, almost 300 people arrived at a Cambria Community Services District Board meeting to show support for the rehiring of former Fire Chief Mark Miller and the firing of Rudock. She refused to say why she fired the chief claiming it was a confidential issue.
Richard Stacy, a longtime CSD employee, told KSBY Miller was fired after he refused to take responsibility for a mistake management made telling lot owners about weed abatement.
Several critics complained that Rudock’s management style was one of intimidation.
In the closed session meeting on Friday, the board selected district Utilities Manager Jerry Gruber to serve as interim general manager.
Rudock’s salary – with pay and benefits at more than $231,000 per year – has also been an issue with some of her critics.
