Patte Atkins-Grad has been reinstated by Governor Rick Scott after being suspended for over two years after being accused of corruption charges.
At this time, Michelle Gomez, who was appointed to serve in her place, will have to step down.
Now Atkins-Grad can receive compensation for back pay, including salary, car allowance, and having her legal fees reimbursed.
At this time, several homeowners in her district are initiating plans for a recall effort.
