Former Sarasota City Manager Retires From Public Service

David Sollenberger, the Sarasota FL. City Manager from 1987-2001 retired today from public service as the City Manager of Plant City FL. I lived here through his whole tenure in Sarasota and was sad to see him leave. I feel he did a great job in leading Sarasota to a very prominent place in Florida tourism. He helped the city grow, along with melding many different personalities of the City Council that he had to deal with.

I met Mr. Sollenberger a few times through my father. He is a very nice man, I want to wish Mr. Sollenberger and his wife a very happy retirement.

Thank you for your service to my community.
