But today, he was fired yet again in a 4-3 vote.

DELAND -- County Council member Deb Denys spearheaded the removal of Palmer Wilson from the New Smyrna Beach-based Southeast Volusia Advertising -- the second time he has been removed from the tourism authority since August.

Denys of New Smyrna Beach was supported by colleagues Pat Northey of Deltona, Pat Patterson of DeLand and Doug Daniels of Ormond Beach. Opposed were at-large Council member Joyce Cusack of DeLand, Joshua Wagner of Daytona Beach and County Chair Jason Davis of Edgewater.

Denys reiterated her initial claim from the Sept. 27 council meeting claim that Wilson was a divisive force on the SVAA., which drew the ire of Cusack as he was her appointment and she described him as honorable and above board. 

Headline Surfer will have a full story later this evening.
