Special to the Citizen

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission  Chairman Rodney Barreto announced Thursday he will step down from the post he has held for six one-year terms.
He said he will serve as chairman until the board selects its next leader and will remain on the board until his five-year term ends in August.
Barreto’s six fellow commissioners elected him to serve as chairman in 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
“I care deeply about the future of this agency and this Commission and am proud of all that we have accomplished,” Barreto said. “My commitment to this Commission will not expire with my term as chairman.”
In 2001, Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Barreto, of Miami and Key Largo, to his first term. He was reappointed by Gov. Charlie Crist.
