Former first lady Adele Graham, among the hundreds of appointees Gov. Rick Scott yanked from pending confirmation last night, won’t be leaving her post on the Governor’s Mansion Commission, if Scott has anything to say about it.
Scott, a Republican, announced this evening he’s reinstating the wife of former governor and former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, a Democrat, after some sniping about giving the former first lady short shrift.
“I’m pleased that Adele Graham and Jane Aurell have been reappointed to the Governor’s Mansion Commission,” first lady Ann Scott said in a press release. “The Governor’s Mansion has such beauty and history. As former residents of the Mansion themselves, I know they will help showcase the People’s House for everyone who visits.”
Jane Aurell, 72, is a Tallahassee community volunteer and is reappointed for a term beginning February 3, 2011, and ending September 30, 2013.
