Yes it’s true.

Sources tell InlandPolitics.com that former San Bernardino County administrative officer Mark H. Uffer is now the incoming CEO of Colorado River Medical Center in Needles.

Terms of Uffer’s new position are cloudy, but sources say Uffer is seeking some type of “Per Diem” compensation until November 1, 2010 when his severance package with San Bernardino County ends.

County sources say any compensation Uffer earns should offset against his county compensation. The “Per Diem” move may be an attempt to try and circumvent the offset.

Uffer has sued the county alleging his firing was ‘Whistle blower Retaliation”.
