Bob Geis, the county’s auditor-controller, announced his retirement this week after 25 years in the elected office and 37 years with the county. In an attempt not to interrupt services, Geis, 62, said he is recommending that the Board of Supervisors appoint his number two, Theo Fallati, to carry out the term until the 2018 election. Fallati said if he is appointed by the board, he has not yet decided if he will run for the seat. Geis’s last day is scheduled for March 27. According to Transparent California, he earns $279,278 a year, including benefits.
