Suzy Lopez, the Hillsborough County State Attorney who replaced Andrew Warren after Gov. Ron DeSantis gave him the boot, is reflecting on her first year leading the department in a message to constituents.
She notes “impactful work … in such a short amount of time,” that is not based on “political convenience.”
Warren, who was twice elected to the office, was suspended from office by DeSantis last August, and later removed entirely.
Since then, Lopez wrote that she and her team “have been laser-focused on strengthening relationships with our law enforcement partners” who she said were “severely strained” before her appointment.
