Q&A with State Attorney, 7th Judicial Circuit, R.J. Larizza

Q: What is happening of interest in the State Attorney’s Office?
A: I’d like to bring something important to people’s attention. Recently, we were prosecuting a man who managed to obtain the Florida Bar Association numbers for two of the prosecuting attorneys working his case for our office. He then fraudulently created an email account and electronic files and sent a case dismissal through the attorney portal to the clerk of court’s office. Someone from the clerk’s office contacted us about it and we have since charged this man with theft of personal information and forgery among other counts. We have also corrected and strengthened the attorney portal to make it more secure.

Q&A with St. Johns County Commissioner Jimmy Johns (District 1)

Q: As of last month, Hunter Conrad had just been hired as the county’s interim county administrator. Can you give an update on the search on for the permanent county administrator?
A: The Board of County Commissioners is responsible for the determination of the interim county administrator as well as the permanent one. We want to demonstrate that whoever gets the permanent position is the correct person with the best fit for St. Johns County. I advocate for whatever is necessary, including possibly a nationwide search, to demonstrate that we’ve performed our fiduciary responsibility to our constituents. Representing the interests of the people and not taking short cuts for this long-term decision is what I call good government.

Q&A with St. Johns County Property Appraiser Eddie Creamer

Q&A with Florida State Representative Cyndi Stevenson, District 17

Q: When did session begin and what is on the schedule at this time?
A: Session began on Jan. 14. All bills have been filed and the next thing approaching is the budget. Leadership decides the big pieces, basically the five major categories of the budget, and then it’s up to the budget chairs to get everything to fit in. Eventually, the budget will be sent to the governor, who has a line item veto. He can take items out of the budget, but not put them in.
