MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. — The Madeira Beach city commissioner who an ethics board found guilty of licking the face of a former city manager is now out of a job.
- Nancy Oakley's resignation accepted Wednesday night

In a special meeting Wednesday night, commissioners voted to accept Nancy Oakley's resignation and publicly censure her.
The governor will decide what Oakley’s penalty will be. She still has until early next month to appeal to the district court of appeal, and in her resignation letter she said she plans to do just that.
She also maintained her innocence.
Shane Crawford is the former city manager who filed the complaint. He said city leaders say they plan to move forward without Oakley on the commission.
"We certainly hope so, and that's why we brought the resolution before the Board of Commissioners and took the action to publicly reprimand and censure commissioner Oakley," said current City Manager Jonathan Evans.
Oakley's term officially ends next month. The city manager says she had not submitted paperwork to run for another term.
The board will appoint someone to take Oakley's place until someone else is elected.
