Cannon Nominated as Speaker of the House

March 2nd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

State Representative Dean Cannon of Winter Park was designated by fellow republicans today to be the Speaker of the Florida House in 2010 through 2012. Cannon won the votes two years ago, but the formal nomination was held today. Cannon says he wants to focus on opportunities.

Florida has always been a place where people go to find opportunity, achievement and hope, Cannon said. A place where, through industry and hard work, mothers and fathers have been able to create better lives for themselves and their children. My grandmother did that for my dad. My mom and dad have now done that for me. Ellen and I hope to do that for our children.

To serve, Cannon must win re-election and his party must keep a majority in the state house. Both are likely, but not guaranteed.
