Calaveras Seeks Auditor-Controller

Calaveras County is currently searching for an interim Auditor-Controller.  The job posting for the normally elected position, which pays just under $112,000 per year plus benefits, went out Wednesday.  Rebecca Callen, who was re-elected in 2018 to the post and who has worked for the county since 2006, recently resigned to take a finance position with the SaveMart supermarket chain that began on Sept.1.  At the time of her resignation, Callen cited she had been complaining awhile that her pay, more than a third less than what other counties pay in the area for similar positions, was not in keeping with her level of responsibilities.  The county’s description of the post indicates that that position would be an appointment by the board of supervisors to complete three years of a four-year term as the department head.  Candidates must complete an online application and submit it with a resume and letter of interest.  Current plans are that those chosen to attend an oral interview will be screened Oct.23, after which the finalists will be interviewed at a later date by the supervisors.
