Seminole's temporary city clerk expected to seek post permanently

SEMINOLE — Ginger Stilton, a five-year Seminole employee, will act as temporary city clerk. The position will become vacant this month when Lesley DeMuth leaves to become Gulfport's city clerk.

Seminole council members decided at a workshop Tuesday not to appoint or advertise for a new clerk until they have time to study the job requirements and pay scale.

Once any changes have been made, they will likely advertise the position.

But Stilton, who has been assistant to City Manager Frank Edmunds, has said she wants the job and is expected to be a strong candidate.

She is a certified clerk and will receive her associate's degree in public administration in July from St. Petersburg College.

This could be the last time the council appoints a clerk. Council members have asked a charter review commission to consider the possibility of making the clerk a noncharter position, meaning he or she would answer to and be hired by the city manager rather than the council. The charter commission is expected to submit its recommendations in late spring.

Architectural requirements

SEMINOLE — Council members are poised to pass architectural standards for businesses in certain areas of the city. The standards, which have been vetted by a committee of business owners, are scheduled to come before the council for tentative approval at its Feb. 10 meeting.

  3. FBI: Florida man sympathized with IS, wanted to bomb mall


    MIAMI (AP) — A Florida man who described himself as a sympathizer of the Islamic State extremist group faces terrorism-related charges stemming from a purported plot to bomb a Miami-area shopping mall, according to court documents filed Monday.

    An undated file image posted on an extremist website on Jan. 14, 2014, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria. The group champions a hyper-religious lifestyle grounded in a self-proclaimed caliphate, but most recruits have a superficial understanding of religion and are largely ignorant in the laws of Islam.
