The provocative news that Tony T. Brown was shot in the head at his Fernandina Beach home last week–allegedly by a wife upset at his tone of voice as he directed her to perform a computer search–has flown across the country from newspapers in New York and Atlanta to even, Fox News. But let’s not forget who Tony Brown is. Though he grew up in the projects in Ohio, he has had an esteemed 30-year career in banking, economic development and finance, including executive roles at the U.S. Department of Treasury, Bank of America and, from 2010 to 2016, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. Under his leadership, the Riviera Beach Marina began its long-awaited $350 million redevelopment; Phase 2 is about to start. Tony Brown is whip smart, fun and hardworking. He is also alive.
