Hernando Commission Wants Governor to Unseat Nicholson
Hernando County Commissioner Nicholas W. “Nick” Nicholson was accused earlier this month of running a brothel and paying for a prostitute.
HERNANDO COUNTY – Commissioners on Tuesday (April 24) agreed to ask Gov. Rick Scott to suspend Hernando County Commissioner Nicholas W. “Nick” Nicholson from office.
They also unanimously voted to remove him as vice chair of the commission. They chose commission member John Alloco to serve as vice chair of the commission and Wayne Dukes to serve as second vice chair. Nicholson was not at the meeting.
Nicholson, 71, was arrested Thursday (April 19) and charged with one count of owning, establishing, maintaining, or operating any place, structure, building, or conveyance for the purpose of lewdness, assignation, or prostitution. He was also charged with two counts of purchasing the service of any person engaged in prostitution. (For related story, click here.)
Alloco has served on the Hernando commission since November 2016. He has twice served as second vice chair. He is the owner and rehab director of Fyzical Therapy and Balance Center in Spring Hill.
Dukes was elected to the Hernando commission in November 2010 and re-elected in 2014. He has served three times as chair, once as vice chair and once as second vice chair. He has also served as chairman of the Metropolitan Planning Organization. He is retired after a 32-year career with the U.S. Air Force in civil engineering and fire service.
