Julie Meadows-Keefe announced today at the Ethics Board’s monthly meeting that she will resign her Ethics Officer position with the City’s Independent Ethics Board in February, 2020.
Ms. Meadows-Keefe was originally hired by the City of Tallahassee and then retained, in a controversial move, by the newly created Ethics Board.
In her remarks, Meadows-Keefe said the decision to resign was hers and not impacted by outside forces.
However, Meadows-Keefe has been under increasing criticism. First, for a romantic relationship she had with an appointed city official and then for not disclosing a professional relationship she had with John Reid, who was recently hired as the board’s counsel.
