Governor Rick Scott announced Friday the appointment of Chandra Hosler to the Hillsborough County Civil Service Board.

Hosler, 41, of Land O’ Lakes, is an in house legal counsel and director of legal affairs for Mid-Atlantic Finance Co., Inc. She received a law degree from the University of Tulsa, College of Law and is appointed to fill a vacant seat for a term beginning September 23, 2016 and ending July 2, 2017.

The Hillsborough County Civil Service Board sets workplace rules for local government employees. Like other agencies such as the Public Transportation Commission, it is unique in comparison to the rest of the state, as it was created by a special act of the Legislature in 1955.

Starting in 2013, several heads of different government agencies in the county – like Doug Belden with the tax collector and Pat Frank with the clerk of the court, opted out of having to use Civil Service board rules and services.
