Steve Stewart received his Masters degree in Public Policy from FSU, and went on to work with the Office of Public Counsel – the office responsible for representing consumers before the Florida Public Service Commission.
While at the Office of Public Counsel, Steve participated in major electric rate cases and provided testimony on behalf of the consumers of Florida before the Florida Public Service Commission. He also represented consumers’ interests by accompanying Public Service Commissioners on various regulated utility site visits.
After leaving the Office of Public Counsel in 1994, and following a one-year stint as a consultant for the Florida Telephone Association, Steve began working in the private sector. In 1999, he started his own business, a real estate marketing company, and in 2006, he bought a company in Tallahassee focused on commercial marketing and printing. Today he runs that business.
He is also the founder of TallahasseeReports.com, an investigative news website reporting on local government activity.
Steve Stewart has been a frequent guest on The Morning Show with Preston Scott for many years and you can hear him weekly on WFLA as he brings you the exclusive Tallahassee and Leon County news that affects your life.
Tallahassee Reports has chronicled the finances involved with the City’s initiative to renovate the Old Electric Building in Cascades. On July 10, 2013 the City Commission voted 5-0 to provide an additional $1.3 million in tax dollars to finance the restaurant project. You can read the details here.
Tallahassee Reports has now learned that the campaign treasurer for Mayoral candidate and current City Commissioner Andrew Gillum is the developer of the restaurant project.
But it did not start out that way.
