CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. – A pair of Char­lotte County top offi­cials got some good news last week.

Char­lotte County Admin­is­tra­tor Ray­mond San­drock has been elected to the Florida Asso­ci­a­tion of County Man­agers (FACM) board of direc­tors for 2016–2017, and long­time county employee Hec­tor Flo­res has been named assis­tant county administrator.

The FACM’s mis­sion is to pro­vide a forum for county man­agers to develop pro­fes­sional rela­tion­ships, dis­cuss cur­rent and future issues affect­ing coun­ties, and pro­vide men­tor­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, edu­ca­tion, advice and advo­cacy on statewide issues.”

My long-time involve­ment with the orga­ni­za­tion has allowed to me share suc­cesses and chal­lenges with county man­agers and admin­is­tra­tors from around the state and imple­ment best prac­tices when they ben­e­fit our county,” San­drock said.

The FACM is affil­i­ated with the Florida Asso­ci­a­tion of Coun­ties, whose president-elect is Com­mis­sioner Chris Con­stance. Char­lotte County’s lead­er­ship posi­tions with these two groups give Char­lotte County a high-profile plat­form to influ­ence statewide policies.

I look for­ward to serv­ing on the FACM board this com­ing year and expect my par­tic­i­pa­tion to enable me to bet­ter serve my com­mu­nity,” San­drock said.

San­drock also announced the pro­mo­tion of Flo­res to assis­tant county admin­is­tra­tor. Flo­res, who has served as assis­tant to the county admin­is­tra­tor since 2012, is a 21-year vet­eran of Char­lotte County.

Mr. Flo­res has been an inte­gral part of our team. He is com­mit­ted to find­ing solu­tions and mak­ing good strate­gic deci­sions. He works well and has the respect of all direc­tors and key offi­cials across the county,” San­drock said. “I am extremely pleased with the work Hec­tor has per­formed in a wide range of assign­ments dur­ing his career. He is very thor­ough and has proven he can han­dle a vari­ety of tasks con­cur­rently. His approach to cus­tomer ser­vice is exceptional.”

Flo­res joined the county in 1995 as a bud­get ana­lyst and rose to fis­cal super­vi­sor in the Pub­lic Safety Depart­ment in 2003. In 2010, San­drock brought him into the admin­is­tra­tion office as an oper­a­tional research ana­lyst, then pro­moted him to assis­tant to the county admin­is­tra­tor in 2012.

I’m hum­bled and hon­ored by the trust and con­fi­dence Mr. San­drock has placed in me since I joined the admin­is­tra­tion team. I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to serve him and the res­i­dents of Char­lotte County in my new role,” Flo­res said.

Flo­res and his wife, Susan, live in Deep Creek with their chil­dren Alex, Evan and Trey.
