Stimulus Czar

March 4th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist has appointed a veteran state administrator to oversee the spending of stimulus dollars. Don Winstead from the Department of Children and Families says he views the state response to the economic problems much the way the state responds to hurricanes, with each agency assigned specific response duties.

We are at our best when we respond to crisis and this is a crisis, Winstead said. And we want to use the kinds of good, effective techniques that we use in crisis to focus on this activity, have a sense of urgency about what we are going to accomplish, shorten the lines of communication, keep the unnecessary bureaucracy to an absolute minimum, and focus on results.

Winstead started the new position today. Winstead managed the Department of Children and Families response to Hurricane Andrew in 1992. He has also been a federal administrator.
