CLEARWATER — The Pinellas County Housing Finance Authority, which provides affordable housing for county residents, is taking applications for a vacancy on its five-member board created when chair Casey Cane resigned last week. The appointment will fulfill Cane’s unexpired term, which ends Dec. 31, 2022. Applicants, who should have experience with affordable housing, can apply at www.pinellascounty.org/boards. Applications can be received no later than 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8. A full term is four years and unpaid.

Cane, a general contractor, pleaded guilty to a scheme to defraud in 2006 when he was 19, but a judge withheld adjudication. However, as the Tampa Bay Times reported, he did not disclose the arrest as required when he first applied for appointment to the board in 2014. He was reappointed last year.
