Sumter County searching for a new finance director

Posted: Updated:
SUMTER COUNTY, GA -

Sumter County is looking for a new finance director after the county commission voted unanimously to fire Anne Barefoot. 

County Officials say she failed to reconcile accounts, failed to administer grants properly, and did not always provide the board with the information they requested.

"There were performance issues, there was an insubordination issue, and there was an abuse of her position, she took some steps that were outside of her scope,” said County Administrator Bill Twomey.

The County Administrator is working to pick an interim finance director as the county plans a search for a full-time replacement.
