One candidate accepts job elsewhere

The city of North Port is down two two candidates for its vacant city manager slot, after Caryn Gardner-Young accepted a job closer to her home on the east coast of Florida. Candidates will be in North Port Aug. 9-10.

NORTH PORT – North Port will only have two candidates to fill its vacant city manager job, after Caryn Gardner-Young dropped out of contention because she took another job closer to her current home on Florida’s east coast. 

City Commissioner Debbie McDowell announced the development on her city Facebook page late Friday afternoon. 

The decision means that two candidates, Alfred (Jerome) Fletcher, assistant chief administrative officer for Montgomery County, Maryland, and Matthew LeCerf, town manager for Johnstown, Colorado, remain in contention.
