Truax remains under fire from fellow members of MLT Board
At Tuesday’s Mammoth Lakes Tourism (MLT) meeting, the Board was supposed to vote on whether MLT Executive Committee Vice Chair Brent Truax would retain his position on the Executive Committee.
MLT cannot dismiss Truax from MLT. MLT can only dismiss him from the Executive Committee. Truax sits on the NGO as a representative of the Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce, and only the Chamber has the authority to remove him as its representative.
On August 29, MLT Board Chair Scott McGuire asked Truax to step down from his post pending an inquiry into alleged ethical issues stemming from Truax serving as both a representative of MLT, and of his employer, Jim Demetriades, developer of the Old Mammoth Place Project, at the same meetings with public agency partners to discuss the future of air service in the Eastern Sierra.
