Description


Deep corruption threatened to ruin jobs and harm lives. Intimidation, distrust, and secrecy became the norm among the executive management group of Chelan County Public Utility.

Even in a small and semirural American government, corrupt leaders aren't simply dishonest and immoral. They're dangerous.

A board of directors should hold wrongdoers accountable, but sometimes that responsibility falls to righteous employees and leadership. A riveting and relevant memoir, The Intrepid Brotherhood details a classic story of enlightened leaders' war against oppressive management when private misconduct evokes public resistance.

A multimillion-dollar project had the potential to transform the PUD's information technology systems and business management. Instead, it ended in conflict, dishonorable work ethics, and Gordon's discharge. His determination for justice revealed a case of sinister practices and problems that would cost more than the company's reputation. Despite economic and social upheaval, career interruption, and near criminal mistreatment, he and the whistleblowers of Chelan County PUD stood up for the professional values lost along the way.

Control and power can corrupt even the most ethical organization's integrity-unless someone speaks up. Read The Intrepid Brotherhood now and pursue a principled foundation of honor for your organization.
