Florida Performs

November 20th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist unveiled a new state website today that he says will help Floridians communicate with their state government. The site, www.FloridaPerforms.com , will have red and green up and down arrows to indicate how Florida is doing in selected areas. For categories where progress is flat, a sideways yellow arrow will be used. The governor says citizens will also be able to communicate with state agencies, offer suggestions, and criticism.

“I believe you cannot manage what you cannot measure. That is abundantly clear to me,” Crist said. “With input from our bosses, weíll do a better job for the people of Florida. And thatís the purpose of this website. To do better, to work harder, to be more accountable, to be more responsible. And to provide them with the services that they expect, deserve and should have.”

The Governor did acknowledge that some of the statistics being used to create measurement are of the stateís own choosing, which may result in higher rankings, such as graduation rates, than are recognized nationally, but says the governor, “We can do better”
