On September 24, 2013, the Board re-appointed Manny Hernandez to the Children's Services Advisory Board to serve as Family Law Division/Guardian ad Litem Representative.

On December 10, 2013, the County advertised this vacancy from December 10, 2013, through January 10th, 2014, and contacted representatives of the 12th Judicial Circuit Court and Guardian ad Litem for potential applicants to expedite the filling of this position.
