Michael Dunn’s resignation, effective immediately, means Gov. Scott won’t have to take steps to remove him from the Lakeland City Commission less than a year after being elected. City commissioners on Friday will discuss next steps on appointing a replacement and holding a subsequent special election. Also today, Dunn had a second appearance before a judge — this time accompanied by his lawyer. Bond is still denied after he was charged Friday with second-degree murder in the death of a shoplifter at his store.
