Gainesville’s City Attorney And City Clerk Resigned On Wednesday


Gainesville City Clerk Omichele Gainey and City Attorney Nicolle Shalley both submitted emails of resignation Wednesday.

Gainey offered to remain through the calendar year “given the upcoming events within city operations” and did not include a reason for her resignation in the email.

Shalley said she has accepted employment as the Levy County Attorney. Her last day of employment with Gainesville will be Nov. 12.

Gainey and Shalley’s resignations follow those of City Commissioner Gail Johnson weeks ago and former Director of the Office of Equity and Inclusion Teneeshia Marshall in April.

Marshall resigned after leading an investigation into discrimination complaints against City Manager Lee Feldman from female employees. The investigation report recommended firing Feldman but the city commission in November voted 4-3 for professional development for Feldman and internal audits instead.

Marshall and Johnson both cited Feldman’s conduct and the city’s working environment as reasons for resigning.
