Washington County's new manager didn't stay long. Robert Bencini, who was hired only in May, announced he's left.
A two-line news release says only that Bencini has resigned and that commissioners have named Cheryl Young as interim county manager. Young has been county attorney and assistant county manager since 2008.
Bencini began work June 7th as deputy county manager and replaced David Peoples when he retired June 30th. He had been community and economic development director for Guilford County.
