Crist to Announce DCF Appointment Soon

September 11th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist says hes close to announcing a new head of the Department of Children and Families. DCF Secretary Bob Butterworth retired last month. Assistant Secretary George Sheldon was named interim director of the department. Governor Crist said Sheldon is making a good case to take over the department.

Im looking forward to reviewing his performance. I think hes done an exemplary job thus far and hope to be able to announce that soon and very shortly, said Crist.

Former Secretary Bob Butterworth says Crist should make an appointment from within the department. Sheldon worked alongside Butterworth for the past year, and has been credited with helping him set a record number of adoptions and bringing more transparency to DCF.
