Sarasota County Commissioners will hold two public sessions for the community to meet candidates for county administrator on Sunday, Nov. 13, and Monday, Nov. 14. Commissioners will hold public interviews with the candidates from 12:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15.
Following the interviews, commissioners will rank the candidates and decide whether to offer an administrator contract. The first public "Meet and Greet" session will be 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13 at the Venice Community Center, 326 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.
Each candidate will be given an opportunity to talk about their experience, followed by a 45-minute period for questions from the public. The meeting will be moderated by a representative of The Mercer Group, which is conducting the administrator search for Sarasota County. Candidates and the public then will have about an hour to socialize.
