Discussed will be her use of development district funds in regard to Living the Dream, a $1 million mansion that was intended to be an upscale retirement center, but instead basically became Askins’ upscale home.Askins resigned last week amid an avalanche of corruption allegations, after being placed on a 30-day suspension. She admitted to making “some mistakes.”Living the Dream is not a project of the development district.
