Some TDC members say request to resign unfair (DOCUMENT)

CountyAdministratorJim Curry said the entire board plans to be there. That includes Commissioners Kelley Windes and Nathan Boyles, who were not on the board at the time of the scandal.

Windes said it’s in the best interest of the county for all commissioners to appear.

“I’m a boat captain and when the boat is taking on water, everyone stands on deck,” he said.

It’s unclear whether any TDC member will attend the committee meeting.

Senate President Don Gaetz and Rep. Matt Gaetz said Wednesday they were pleased to hear that the Auditing Committee had summoned officials to discuss the TDC scandal. Don Gaetz — to whom the Auditing Committee reports — said he had not instructed the committee to request county officials’ presence.

Both Gaetzes praised the decision after expressing dissatisfaction with the county’s response to the scandal at a legislative delegation meeting they hosted Jan. 30.

“It’s somewhat disingenuous for the commissioners to trot out Commissioner Boyles as the face of the county’s response to the TDC problems,” Matt Gaetz said of that meeting.
