BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Commission voted 3-2 to put in place term limits for Tourist Development Council members.

Commission Vice Chair Bryan Lober put forth the proposal during the regular meeting of the commission on Dec. 4 at the Government Center in Viera.

Commission Chair Kristine Isnardi and Commissioner John Tobia voted with Lober in favor of the proposal. Voting against term limits for TDC members were Commissioners Rita Pritchett and Curt Smith.

“The voters want us to have term limits, and we are delegating to some degree what we would otherwise be doing to an advisory board, and I think it is important to have comparable term limits, or even more stringent term limits,” said Lober.

Lober’s proposal would term out TDC members who have had two consecutive four-year terms and calls for this action to be retroactive for current TDC members when their term expires.

“I totally agree with term limits and it is reestablishing the public trust and whether or not our TDC has done anything remotely questionable,” said Isnardi.

Lober’s proposal also stipulates that former executive directors of the Space Coast Office of Tourism could not be eligible to become a member of the TDC  for at least two years after leaving their executive director position.

The proposal will be placed on the agenda for a final vote in January.
