Tallahassee city commission candidate Lisa Brown said that the potential conflicts recently reported in a Tallahassee Reports article would be addressed at a Tallahassee Leon Federal Credit Union (TLFCU) board meeting scheduled for April 20th.
TR reported that members of the TLFCU board included Dustin Daniels and Ben Pingree.
Dustin Daniels, the former chief of staff for Mayor Andrew Gillum as of March 21, 2018, is currently considering a run for local office.
Pingree, in his role as a local government official, reports to the Intergovernmental Agency (IA) where city and county elected officials sit jointly.
Pingree is responsible for the management and oversight of Planning, Land Management, and Community Enhancement departments, including the nearly $1 billion “Blueprint 2020” program.
In an interview, Brown acknowledged the potential for conflicts given the current situation and said the issue will be addressed at the April 20th board meeting.
Ms. Brown also said that she is exploring the possibility of asking for guidance from the Florida Commission on Ethics.
In addition, Ms. Brown told TR she would be resigning for the city’s citizen advisory board for utilities. She was as appointed to the board by former city manager Rick Fernandez.
