Harrison County tourism director Steve Richer is not taking a job in Reno, Nevada. Richer was one of three finalists to take over the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority. But Tuesday night, a search committee eliminated him from consideration.
Instead the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority will try to convince a Las Vegas marketing specialist that he should accept the job. Jeff Beckelman has emerged as the leading candidate for the president and chief executive officer position.
