Description

The World reports on financial blunders at the Chelan County Public Utility District, one of the largest publicly owned electricity generators in the country. The stories found that "the PUD had evolved into a corporate-like entity focused on profits and run by appointed managers rather than elected commissioners; had engaged in other questionable practices (such as rewarding employees with "cashouts" and cushy pensions, and spending millions on consultants and travel); and had lost touch with its public power roots, long part of the community psyche."
