November 18, 2012

Charles Bourbeau

Charles Bourbeau, director of finance and information technology for the city of San Luis Obispo, has resigned his post.

Bourbeau told CalCoastNews Friday he will be leaving Dec. 7 due to health problems.

“There are some big [fiscal] issues coming up over the next few months which will be very stressful. I need to take care of my health,” said Bourbeau. He cited a specific problem and asked for privacy.

Bourbeau was hired just last year after a career in the California National Guard.

Shelly Stanwyck, director of Parks and Recreation, will take over the position temporarily.

On November 29, 2012 Charles Bourbeau vacated his office at the San Luis Obispo City Hall and left over a week ealier than his previously stated last day of service of december 7, 2012.

The true circumstances of his premature departure should be made known to the local city residents and taxpayers as soon as possible.

Clearly, the finacial conditions within the city are a lot worse than previously painted by the present mayor and city manager.

A much deeper investigation is now warranted to determine what the “H” is going on here in Happy Towm, USA and SOON!
