INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (AP) — An executive for the San Francisco Giants baseball team has withdrawn his name from the candidates being considered to be the next general manager of the Incline Village General Improvement District.
Richard Mears, the Giants' vice president for guest services, tells the Sierra Sun he made the decision late last week after talking to his financial adviser. He says he'll be in a position to retire if he stays three more years with the major league team, but would have to wait eight years if he took the job at Tahoe because of the high cost of living.
Five other candidates are scheduled to appear at an all-day public interview Oct. 7 as part of the search for a replacement for Bill Horn, who is retiring.
