Governor Appoints Conservative Judge to States Highest Court

August 28th, 2008 by flanews

Thursday Governor Charlie Crist made his first of four appointments to the states highest court. Appeals Court Judge Charles Canady will replace Florida Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero. Canady was appointed to the 2nd District Appeals Court by Former Governor Jeb Bush. The conservative judge graduated from Yale University in the late 70s. He served in the Florida House and Congress. Canady said his life of public service has prepared him to be a Supreme Court Justice.

The job in many respects will be similar to the job Ive had as an appellant judge on the 2nd district Court, but its of course I think a more demanding job, but Im looking forward to meting the challenges of this new responsibility, said Canady.

Governor Crist will make three more State Supreme Court appointments over the next six months.
