The Florida Commission on Ethics has dismissed two separate complaints that had accused Charlotte County Commissioner Tricia Duffy of misusing her position to benefit her husband and local organizations.
The complaint filed by Robert Herriman on Aug. 23 alleged Duffy used her authority to help Peace River Regional Medical Center when, in 2011, she voted to approve funding for the revitalization of the Parkside area of Port Charlotte, where the hospital is located. Duffy’s husband, Charlotte Technical Center director Barney Duffy, is a nonpaid member of Peace River’s board of trustees.
