Governor Rick Scott Reinstates Tamarac Commissioner Atkins-Grad

Is “Team Tamarac” back?

The Sun Sentinel broke the news that Patte Atkins-Grad has been reinstated by Governor Rick Scott after being suspended for over two years after being accused on 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 as well as having her legal fees reimbursed.

At this time, several homeowners in her district are initiating plans for a recall effort.  More information as I learn more.
