Gov. DeSantis suspends Prebble Ramswell from Destin City Council

On Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Prebble Ramswell from Destin City Council following her October arrest.

In the Executive Order, it states:

“It is in the best interests of the residents of the City of Destin and the citizens of the State of Florida, that Prebble Quinn Ramswell be immediately suspended from the public office which she now holds, upon the grounds set forth in this executive order,” wrote Gov. DeSantis in an executive order.

Ramswell was arrested in early October during the execution of the search warrant for obstruction and alleged battery of a law enforcement officer.

According to the Executive Order, Ramswell is prohibited from:

  • Performing any official act, duty, or function of public office.
  • Receiving any pay or allowance.
  • And from being entitled to any of the emoluments or privileges of public office during the period of this suspension.

According to the Governor’s Office, the suspension “shall be from today, until further Executive Order is issued, or as otherwise provided by law.”
