LARGO — Susan Stanton has impressed a few of her new bosses, but she's garnering some of the same criticism in Lake Worth that she received as Largo's manager, the Palm Beach Post says.
Some Largo workers and officials said Stanton was overly tough and inflexible. In her first annual evaluation as Lake Worth's city manager, the chief complaint city commissioners had about Stanton was her "abrasive management style," the paper said.
Stanton, 51, who was formerly known as Steve, was fired from Largo in 2007 after news of the decision to become a woman became public. She was hired as Lake Worth's city manager a year ago. Three Lake Worth city leaders gave Stanton high marks. The other two gave her average or below scores. Her job did not appear to be in danger.
