Richland County’s chief financial officer has become the third key staffer to leave county government within six months.

Daniel Driggers resigned Tuesday, according to an email from county administrator Gerald Seals. Driggers, who oversees county government finances, hand delivered his resignation at the end of the business day.

Driggers’ final day will be April 25, according to the email.

The State’s request for details of Driggers’ departure went unanswered Wednesday afternoon.

In October, Roxanne Ancheta and Warren Harley, also senior staffers, left voluntarily and received severance packages, according to a county councilman.
