Bridgett Named St. Mary’s New County Administrator

On March 26, Rebecca Bridgett was appointed the new county government administrator of St. Mary’s County; the St. Mary’s commissioners voted her in 5-0.

Bridgett served as Charles County government’s administrator until June 26, 2012.  The Southern Maryland Newspapers Online published,

In addition to being county administrator for Charles County, Bridgett was also director of the Charles County Department of Social Services, acting executive director of the Social Services Administration of the Maryland Department of Human Resources, and a member and chairwoman of the Charles County Board of Education.

“I think Charles County’s loss will be our gain,” St. Mary’s County Commissioner Larry Jarboe (R) said Tuesday. “It’s wonderful to see a woman in the position … but she rose to the top based on her qualifications.”

Bridgett will start her new position in St. Mary’s County on April 15.
