Palm Beach County’s Deputy Public Safety Director, Stephanie M. Sejnoha, has been tabbed to take the top spot, replacing Vince Bonvento, who retired Monday after 44 years in county service.

County Administrator Verdenia Baker wrote commissioners Monday afternoon to ask that at Tuesday’s meeting, they ratify Sejnoha’s promotion.

Sejnoha, a graduate of Florida State University, started in the county’s financial sector in January 2001 and later was director of finance for the Public Safety Department in 2010 before being named its deputy in June 2015.

In the last year, she’s been a key player in talks to work out how to regulate Uber and similar app-based ride services, and determine how they compete with traditional for-hire vehicle services. She also worked on a recently-enacted set of rules for home caregivers.
