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.
