Florida Atlantic University administrator fined $2,500 for ethics violation

The Florida Ethics Commission has fined a Florida Atlantic University administrator $2,500 for accepting a personal loan from a vendor. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel says Paulo Brida, a former associate director of facilities, requested and accepted a $9,500 loan in 2010 from Ed Borowy, owner of Florida Building and Remodeling, who was seeking university business. The commission chose a lesser penalty than allowed by law because Brida already had lost $10,000 in pay after a suspension and demotion. He is now a facilities project coordinator.
