Proud of University of Florida President Ben Sasse for commencing national searches for new UF Provost and new UF Chief Operating Office. That is the standard of care.
Our City of St. Augustine and St. Johns County need to do national searches for the jobs of City Manager and County Administrator.
Why not search for the best people?
"Naples, Fort Walton Beach, Indianola, Miami Beach, Clearwater, Atlantic Beach, Gainesville, Juno Beach, Pompano Beach, Fort Myers and St. Pete Beach are among the Florida cities that have recently hired executive search firms in their searches for a city manager." https://fernandinaobserver.com/commentary/news-commentary-commissions-city-manager-search-gets-off-to-a-ragged-start/
