Westlake city attorney defends her tenure in Port St. Lucie

Pam E. Booker, fired as city attorney in Port St. Lucie but hired for similar work in the new city of Westlake, defended her tenure in her previous job.

She said she was fired for being “too strictly letter of the law” and unwilling to be political in a job she viewed as strictly legal in nature.

Westlake’s hiring of Booker – and its decision to pay Booker’s firm $276,000 per year – will likely increase criticism of how the new city was incorporated.
