Well it’s official!

William Abernathie, former president of the San Bernardino County Safety Employees Benefit Association (SEBA) has officially retired effective June 30, 2011.

Abernathie, who served six years as president, abruptly resigned earlier this year after pledging to finish the remainder of his current term, which will expire this November.

SEBA is now engulfed in a myriad of internal legal and contract language issues.

Sources say Abernathie has been hired as the Director of Security for Casino Morongo.
