Rydingsword to leave county post

Mariposa County Human Services Director Jim Rydingsword has accepted a position in San Benito County, he announced on Sept. 17. 

Rydingsword will continue in the local position through Oct. 11. He cited financial security and a wish to be closer to the coast in his resignation letter, chief county administrator Rick Benson said.

The current director will occupy a similar position in San Benito County, which is located east of Salinas and Monterey.

Rydingsword's departure will leave the county without two department heads. Earlier this summer, Mariposa County Fire Department Chief Jim Wilson said he will retire on Dec. 30.
