Today, Tallahassee Reports was notified that Adam Corey has resigned his position on the Tallahassee Housing Authority (THA) board.
On September 9th Tallahassee Reports published an article detailing relationships between the Gunster Law Firm and the City of Tallahassee.
The report addressed potential conflicts between Lila Jaber, the Chairman of the City’s Ethics Board and Adam Corey, the current owner of the Edison restaurant in Cascades Park and a member of the Tallahassee Housing Authority. The article can be read here.
Since that report Lila Jaber has resigned from the Ethics Board and Mr. Corey has resigned from Gunster Law and the THA.
Yesterday Tallahassee Reports talked to the legal counsel of the Tallahassee Housing Authority and the City Attorney’s office about potential conflicts of interest with THA Board member Adam Corey.
Mr. Larry White, the legal counsel to THA said he would have to seek more information before making any comments about conflicts. The City Attorney, Mr Shelley, did not return our calls.
Our report can be viewed here.
Mr. Corey resigned from the THA Board via email on September 19, 2015.
As of yesterday, Mr. Corey was still listed on THA’s website and the City’s website as a member of the Board.
