Statement from Secretary McDonough Regarding Personnel Changes

I am pleased to announce the appointment of the following people to key positions:

  • Wendel Whitehurst - from Union CI Warden to Region 1 Director
  • Richard Dugger - former Department of Corrections Secretary to Region 2 Director
  • Randall Bryant - from Tomoka CI Warden to Florida State Prison Warden
  • John Hancock - from Lawtey CI Assistant Warden to Wakulla CI Warden
  • Ronnie Harris - from Martin CI Warden to Washington CI Warden
  • David McCallum - from Hamilton CI Assistant Warden to Cross City CI Warden

I believe these individuals represent the leadership, integrity, commitment and sense of duty the Department of Corrections deserves. These dedicated employees have demonstrated their professionalism through a guiding philosophy of ethical duty and commitment to the State of Florida, their fellow employees and the people in their care.

However, the following individuals do not have my trust and confidence to lead department personnel in the way they deserve to be led, so they will be replaced with the leaders listed above who do.

I have made the decision to terminate the following employees:

  • Al Solomon - Region 1 Director
  • Brad Carter - Region 2 Director
  • Michael Rathmann - Warden, FSP
  • Kenneth Lampp - Warden, Wakulla CI
  • Rick Anglin - Warden, Washington CI
  • Dave Farcas - Warden, Cross City CI
  • Dale Hughes - Assistant Warden, Gulf CI
  • Cornelius Faulk - Assistant Warden, Baker CI
  • Lamar Griffis - Assistant Warden, Reception and Medical Center
