Recently Retired UF Lawyer Applies for HARB Position -- Another Conflict of Interest Looming for HARB? There is Already One UF Employee on HARB: One is Enough

BARBARA WINGO's St. Augustine property is not homesteaded; her main residence is apparently in Gainesville, where her husband is a UF physician.

Still on UF website, but her UF e-mail responds by autoresponder that she's retired after "30+ wonderful years."  Here's the autoresponder, in haec verba:

After 30+ wonderful years, I have retired from the University of Florida General Counsel's Office.
