DCA Secretary Tom Pelham

Secretary Tom Pelham of the Florida Department of Community Affairs has announced that he will be leaving the department at the end of Governor Crist's term of office.

Pelham has clashed with Rick Scott over the Gov.-elect's campaign attacks on DCA.

"It's very discouraging to public servants, who are given a mission and responsibility to enforce laws enacted by others, to be constantly bashed for doing their job," Pelham has said.

His resignation is effective at the close of business January 3, 2011.
