Details of ExpoPark Firing Released
Cascade County fired the general manager of Montana ExpoPark after an investigation found she charged personal purchases to the county, bullied employees and misused sponsorship benefits.
County commissioners voted Thursday to allow Lisa Bracco to resign in return for dropping her wrongful discharge lawsuit. The Great Falls Tribune reports Bracco later agreed to make the settlement public.
The county alleged Bracco gave away $2,000 worth of VIP seating for a Miranda Lambert concert to family members; obtained a trailer lease in exchange for a trucking company's advertising at the State Fair and used it to haul hay for her horse, and took county-purchased wood shavings as bedding for her horse.
The county also said Bracco's actions contributed to it having to make payouts in discrimination or wrongful termination claims.
Bracco denied the allegations.
