Applications pour in for new administrations

As they transition into running the state, Florida’s next Governor and Agriculture Commissioner each have launched websites for potential job applicants.

Scott used a similar approach for non-leadership appointments.

As of Monday, more than 1,000 candidates have applied to serve in the new Governor’s administration, according to David Vasquez, a spokesman for the Ron DeSantis transition team.

“The online portal is an excellent resource for our team to screen and select talented individuals to fill positions throughout the administration,” Vasquez said.

Agriculture Commissioner-elect Nikki Fried’s spokesman Max Flugrath said her website has received “hundreds of resumes” so far.

Fried’s transition team will begin interviews “in the coming weeks,” Flugrath said.

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.
