CFTOD Administrator Glen Gilzean Resigns From Ethics Commission cftod-new-logo

According to WESH news, Glen Gilzean, an administrator of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District (CFTOD), has resigned from the Florida Ethics Commission to keep his $400k/year employment with the CTFOD.

Last week, we reported the apparent conflict of interest as Florida law does not permit public employees to serve on a government watchdog panel. In 2019, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Gilzean to the Ethics Commission and has re-appointed Gilzean since. It remains unclear why the Governor was unaware of the conflict.

In their story, WESH 2 News states that they have a copy of Gilzean’s letter of resignation and quotes it in part:

It recently came to my attention that my position as District Administrator of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District may not be compatible with my position as a member and Chairman of the Florida Commission on Ethics. After reviewing the matter with legal counsel, I have decided that prudence dictates that I discontinue serving in one of the two positions. Therefore, I respectfully tender my resignation from the Florida Commission on Ethics, effective immediately.
