South Lake Tahoe Manager Calls It Quits

South Lake Tahoe City Manager Frank Rush has announced his resignation just under one year after taking the job. He will step down on January 24 and assume the top administrator position in Big Bear Lake.

“This news is very disappointing. The City has made significant progress over the last year with the help of Mr. Rush as City Manager,” said Mayor Brooke Laine. “Ironically, this council and our city staff have operated without a city manager before and I am confident we will work diligently to fill this key position. We wish Mr. Rush the best.”

Rush joined the city in December of 2018. He and his family moved to California from North Carolina.

Rush has two and a half decades of public sector experience. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from the State University of New York at Binghamton before obtaining a Master of Public Administration degree from North Carolina State University.
