In wake of controversial election, Fort Lauderdale commissioners vote to fire city attorney

In the wake of an election controversy, Fort Lauderdale city commissioners voted Tuesday night to fire City Attorney Alain Boileau, who has held the position since 2018.

Boileau has worked for the city since 2001, according to his official biography, and took over the top spot 17 years later. He was placed on paid administrative leave for 60 days in advance of his termination.

In a 3 to 2 vote, newly-elected commissioners, including ex-city auditor John Herbst, voted to fire Boileau. Mayor Dean Trantalis and Commissioner Steve Glassman, who were holdovers from the previous commission, voted to retain him.
