Susan Stanton, who was at the center of controversy after being fired in March 2007 as Largo, Florida City Manager after disclosing that she was in the process of making a gender identity transition, has been hired as City Manager of Greenfield, California, SDGLN reports:
Ahead of the Greenfield vote, Mariana Luna of Salinas Valley Pride Celebrations applauded the city for its decision to consider Stanton for city manager.
“I think it’s great … (but) I don’t think her gender matters,” Luna told thecalifornian.com. “I don’t think that should be a reason to discriminate. If she’s able to do her job, it wouldn’t matter if she’s female or male.”
