County Administrator Randy Reid tells the Sarasota News Leader that Crystal Pruitt is no longer the county’s interim communications director, and that the process for hiring a permanent director will begin soon.

Pruitt will remain with the Communications Department, which is in the midst of “reorganizing,” according to Reid. The administrator says that Pruitt “did a good job with us.” According to her LinkedIn and Facebook profiles, Pruitt has been with the county since 2006.

Liz Nolan, currently the manager at Selby Public Library, will fill in “temporarily” as communications director, Reid says, but a search for a permanent replacement will begin soon, first internally and then externally. “I’ll probably try to get it out first thing on Monday,” Reid says.
