South Bay commissioner fined $250 for violating Sunshine Law

From The Palm Beach Post: WEST PALM BEACH — While lauding her educational accomplishments and her community service, a judge Monday rejected South Bay Commissioner Shirley Walker-Turner’s plea to set aside her conviction and fined her $250 for violating the state’s Sunshine Law.


The punishment is similar to that given former South Bay Commissioners Linda Johnson and John Wilson. All three were convicted of privately agreeing to approve a $25,139 payment to former City Manager Corey Alston for unused vacation time. Johnson, who also went to trial, was fined $500. Wilson, who took a plea, was not fined.
