CAO Benson submits resignation

Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014 - 11:15 a.m. - Mariposa County Chief Administrative Officer Rick Benson this week submitted his resignation following close to eight years of service with the county.

"It's time," Benson told the GAZETTE today. He cited a long commute that saw him spending work weeks in Mariposa and returning to his wife and home in the Bakersfield area on weekends.

This week, Benson was listed as one of seven finalists for a County Manager position in Douglas County, Nev. on the county's Web site. He has not yet been offered the job, Benson said this week.

"I intend to retire sometime soon, but I want to keep my options open," he said. 

Benson will stay in the Mariposa County job to shepherd this summer's budget process for the new fiscal year, he said.
