Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Good luck Susan

Former Largo City Manager Steve Stanton is back in the news.

SARASOTA - In a professional victory for the woman Steve Stanton hopes to become, the Sarasota City Commission on Wednesday unanimously selected "Susan Stanton" as one of 11 job finalists for city manager.

Stanton, who applied for the job under the name he plans to assume later this month, was one of only three finalists selected by all five commissioners.

That unanimity is expected to help Stanton become one of four to six finalists commissioners will interview privately and publicly May 29 and 30.

Stanton, who served as Largo's city manager for 14 years, was fired from that job in March, a month after revealing his plans to become a woman. He commended Sarasota's leaders for keeping his application in the running and not using the excuse of national media attention to weed it out.

"It certainly shows they're sincerely interested in evaluating my credentials and my experience," said Stanton, 48.

Largo commissioners, some of whom voted to fire him, said they were pleased Sarasota looked past the gender issue to consider Stanton.

"That means that they're open, and that's a good thing," said Largo Commissioner Andy Guyette, who was among the five commissioners who voted to fire Stanton. Guyette said he would have voted to keep Stanton, but he felt Stanton gave preferential treatment to subordinates whom he told about his plans to become a woman.
Too little too late so far as concerned in regard to Guyette and his fellow knuckleheads. They acted like complete idiots when they fired Stanton. Guyette is a disgrace.

As I have stated all along, I wish Steve/Susan Stanton and his family the best.
