Governor Crist appoints Kevin Tynan to Broward County School Board

Governor Charlie Crist today appointed Kevin Tynan of Pembroke Pines to the Broward County School Board. He will fill the vacancy created by the suspension of Beverly Gallagher. The appointment takes effect immediately. The School Board will announce an official swearing in date.

“For seven years, Kevin has devoted his legal career to the ethics field, and his experience will be invaluable to the school board,” Governor Crist said.  “I am grateful that he will continue to serve his community with the highest of standards.”

Kevin Tynan, 50, has been an attorney with Richardson and Tynan since 2001. Previously, he practiced with Entin, Margules and Della Ferra from 2000 to 2001. He served as staff counsel for the Florida Bar from 1988 to 2000, including managing disciplinary proceedings involving ethics issues. He has served on the Board of Commissioners, South Broward Hospital District, since 2002. He received his bachelor’s degree from Barry University and a law degree from Nova Center for the Study of Law.

Today’s appointment is the result of Governor Crist’s suspension of public officials due to criminal complaints filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on September 23, 2009. Tynan will serve during Gallagher’s suspension.
