Manatee County CFO Jan Brewer resigns amid administrative turmoil

Turmoil among Manatee County’s administration continued Tuesday with the resignation of Chief Financial Officer Jan Brewer amid the budget preparation season.

Brewer submitted a letter of resignation on Tuesday, citing concerns about County Administrator Scott Hopes. She plans to vacate the position after June 8, the date of the county’s first budget workshop session of the year.

“That is drastic in the middle of a budget season,” Commissioner Carol Whitmore said during a county meeting on Tuesday. “She’s the most powerful person with our money in the county… I don’t know how we are going to do this with our CFO quit.”
