Political World Awaits Candidates To Replace Chief Prosecutor Mike Satz

Mike Satz

Where are all the candidates?

It’s been a month since Broward State Attorney Mike Satz announced he wasn’t running and the heavy-hitters have yet to surface.

Although it is 13 months before the Democratic primary, it is almost certain that Satz’s actual replacement is not running yet.

Satz’s successor needs to be:

* A manager with experience in running an office. The State Attorney’s Office has a multi-million dollar budget and hundreds of independent-minded lawyers.

*A reformer who will reshape the prosecutor’s office, emphasizing rehabilitation rather than punishment.

Who will step up?

The political world is awaiting two candidates — Coconut Creek Commissioner and criminal defense lawyer Josh Rydell and prosecutor Sarahnell Murphy.
