Paul and others, just to let you know the process for the calling of a
new stake president:
The General Authorities arrive, and they first interview the current
stake presidency and high council, then the bishops, then other high
priests in the stake, etc.
The GAs don't ask to see the persons with the highest salaries. In fact,
it isn't a consideration. Usually, they know who it is as soon as the
person steps into the room, as the Spirit tells them who it should be. If
anyone considers the finances, it must be the Lord, because the GAs don't
ask anyone about their finances until after they are called (if at all).
This same thing happens in calling bishops and branch presidents. I just
saw our stake presidency call a branch president who has never been in a
presidency before. He's been active for about 5 years now, and only
married a year ago (he's 50 years old), with a warehouse job. Yet the
spirit he has and the strength he brings to the unit will greatly bless
