New Polk County Manager named

Bartow, FL -- Polk County Commissioners had narrowed the field to four. But in the end, they decided to go with what they know in their search for a new County Manager.

By a unanimous vote, commissioners have named Jim Freeman as a replacement for Mike Herr, who resigned last year.

Freeman, 52, had been acting as interim county manager since Herr's departure.

Freeman has worked for Polk County for more than two decades, most recently as a deputy county manager.

He described himself to comissioners as the right man for the job at the right time, and told them he would not "embarrass" them or the citizens of Polk County.
