I reported last night that as of Monday afternoon, Andy Green no longer manages the Redding Convention Center and Visitors Bureau. You first read about Green’s absence from his high-level city management position when I posted the news last month. Below are Green’s replies to my e-mailed questions.
Q: I was told you retired. Is that accurate?
Yes, I retired from the city.
Q: How did you arrive at this decision?
Q: What will you do now?
Rest, heal, ride, fish and assist my mother in the sale of her home (of 40+ years) and her relocation.
Q: Do you have another job lined up?
I will be looking for something to do to keep me in the north state. In the meantime, I will be doing some work for the San Mateo County Event Center for the summer.
Q: Is there anything that would have convinced you to stay in your position?
I don’t know.
Q: When you look back at your time in this job, what are you most proud?
Tony Bennett signing “Fly me to the Moon” a cappella from the front edge of the stage. Also, Conway and Korman, Seinfeld, Cats, Willie Nelson, Kenny Loggins, and making budget for 5 years in a row.
