The City of Tallahassee’s Independent Ethics Board voted to appoint Carlos Rey to fill a seat that is required to be chosen by the six Ethics Board members.
Five of the nineteen applicants spoke at the Ethics meeting. After their comments, Board Chairman Richard Herring polled the members and Mr. Rey received five votes.
After the informal discussion, a motion was made and Rey was unanimously selected by the Board.
Since 2012, Mr. Rey has worked with the Assistant General Counsel for the Florida Secretary of State. His responsibilities include negotiating vendor contracts, serving as in-house counsel for five divisions, and advising of ethics and public records issues.
More recently, Rey was an unsuccessful candidate for Leon County Commission Seat 3. After being asked about his campaign and possible future runs, he informed the Board he was not interested in running for office in the near future.
