Naples attorney Tom Grady has been added to the state’s Constitution Review Commission, Governor Rick Scott announced Thursday evening.
Grady, who owns GradyLaw, a law firm which specializes in the financial industry, replaces Jimmy Patronis on the commission. Patronis gave up his seat when he was appointed as the state’s Chief Financial Officer, replacing Jeff Atwater.
“Tom has been an advocate for Floridians throughout his entire career and I know he will continue to relentlessly work to make our state the best place for families and job creators to succeed for generations to come,” Scott said in a statement. “I am proud to appoint Tom to the Florida Constitution Revision Commission today and I am confident that he will be an excellent addition to this historic Commission.”
The Constitution Review Commission is created every 20 years to review the state’s constitution, and can suggest amendments to go up for a statewide vote.
In addition to his legal practice, Grady also serves as CEO of Quest for Success, a college preparedness facility in Naples. He also previously served as a state representative for one term, 2008 to 2010, and as a member of the Florida Gulf Coast University Board of Trustees.
Collier County School Board member Erika Donalds also serves on the CRC.
