Fired transsexual Largo city manager applies for new job – The Associated Press

Sarasota, Fla. — The Largo city manager who was fired after revealing his plans to have a sex change has applied for the same job in Sarasota.

Steve Stanton, 48, said he submitted his resume this week under his future female name, Susan A. Stanton, with an asterisk that the name change is pending.

“I really had not anticipated applying for a city manager job so quickly,” Stanton told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. “But the opportunity has availed itself, and so we’ll see.”

Sarasota commissioners will review about 15 resumes for the job next month. Then they will narrow the group to eight candidates. Those applicants will be interviewed by commissioners.
