St. Petersburg manager to leave post for United Way




The St. Petersburg  manager who has battled homeless and veteran issues is leaving after six years.

Rhonda Abbott, manager of veteran, social and homeless services, has accepted a job at United Way Suncoast. Her last day is Nov. 26. She started with the city in September 2006 and earns about $68,000. 

Abbott called the new position an “exciting opportunity” and said she still plans to help the community in her new role.

“My time with the city has been very rewarding,” she said. “I believe much has been accomplished with the homeless issues. There will always be work to do in this arena.”
