Their resignations come just days after County Administrator Howard Tipton left to become town manager of Longboat Key. County Attorney Dan McIntyre has been interim county administrator since Friday.
Satterlee has worked for the county for about 17 years. In 2006, he was the Transportation Planning Organization director. He became county planning and development services director in 2007, and held that position for seven years before being promoted to deputy county administrator.
Jefferson has been deputy county administrator since June 2020, according to his LinkedIn profile. Prior to that, he was assistant Broward County administrator for eight years.
