SEMINOLE—Ann Marie Mancuso has officially been named the city of Seminole’s new city clerk.

Mancuso has held the position on an interim basis for three months after the former city clerk, Patty Beliveau, resigned as of Feb. 22 to take a job as deputy city clerk with the city of St. Petersburg. Prior to this, Mancuso was secretary to City Manager Ann Toney-Deal for one-and-a-half years. Toney-Deal said she is “so pleased” that Mancuso was interested in the position, and said her previous role as secretary to the city manager prepared her well for her new job.

“During that time, she worked closely with and assisted the city clerk,” Toney-Deal said. “She also was the interim city clerk for three very busy months and did an excellent job. Ann Marie’s education and professional background has well prepared her to assume this position. She also has wonderful interpersonal skills that serve her well when dealing with the public and her coworkers.”

Mancuso said, “Although I am very happy to be officially hired as the city clerk, I am more focused on the job itself, rather than the actual title change. It is a very exciting time for me. I truly appreciate the opportunity I have been provided to work alongside such a great team and community.”

Prior to joining the city in 2017, she spent 22 years at St. Petersburg Catholic High School in various roles. Most recently, she was executive assistant to the president/principal from 2008 to 2017.
