By ROBERT A. McDONALD

John Shoals, mayor of Grover Beach, has been hired as a PG&E governmental affairs representative. He’ll be focusing on getting the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant re-licensed.

Shoals, a Democrat, dropped out of the race to replace State Assemblyman Sam Blakeslee in October. He had formerly worked for RRM Design Group and the city of San Luis Obispo.
