Stanton takes a shot at Sarasota job

By Times Staff
Published April 19, 2007


Steve Stanton, who lost his job last month as Largo's city manager after announcing he planned to become a woman, is back on the job market. He's applied for the city manager job in tony Sarasota, where the winning candidate is expected to earn up to $180,000 annually.

Stanton's attorney, Karen Doering, said it just made sense. "Sarasota, in general, is a good, progressive community. It's got the arts and the beach. It's an appealing city to work for," she said.

Stanton earned $140,234 in Largo managing about 1,000 employees and a $130-million budget. In Sarasota, the manager supervises 780 employees and a $187-million budget. Stanton will learn next month if he's made the first cut.
