Commissioners reject Curry’s resignation; Dowd survives vote

Published: Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 10:17 AM.

Harris argued that Dowd has done “a very good job” and “has always been there with the right answers.”

Boyles prefaced his vote with support for Dowd, adding that he planned to meet with Dowd to discuss his work for the county.

“I’m not going to vote to terminate John Dowd tonight,” Boyles said. “It’s 15 minutes to 1 a.m., and we’ve been at this for seven hours.”

He said Okaloosa County has changed tremendously since Dowd took his job and the county is “no longer a one-attorney county.”

Boyles said the county must look at restructuring its legal representation in the near future.
