Total Recall: Tamarac Official Gets Her Money and Leaves

ATKINS-GRAD-RECALLEDBy: Sharon Aron Baron:

Appropriately, on Friday the 13 of September, Atkins-Grad received funds wired to her in the amount of $8,000 from the City of Tamarac, it was confirmed by Tamarac City Attorney Jacob Horowitz.

After city commission members voted unanimously Thursday evening to accept her resignation along with the demand for money, the city wasted no time in paying her the money she requested.  Also, at this time, the appeals that she had filed in her recall case will no longer be necessary.

Since there will no longer be an election, the city commission will be appointing a city commissioner to fill the position until the 2014 election.  As a formality, they will be accepting applications and interviewing candidates, however, more than likely they will appoint District Two resident Michelle Gomez back in the position.  For two years, Gomez sat in the seat while Atkins-Grad was suspended on corruption charges.
