Crist on South Florida Political Climate

March 2nd, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist will emphasis protecting education and ethics in his State of the State address at 6 pm tonight.

Asked what the public should expect from lawmakers in the next 60 days, Crist says he is concerned about the political climate in Southeast Florida, and took a backhand shot at his US Senate Rival.

Well I think that well have to be very responsible, very prudent with the taxpayers money,” Crist said. “Make sure that we have a focus on the economy, on jobs and on education. And make sure that we stay focused on getting rid of this culture of corruption in South Florida.

Reporter: When youre saying culture of corruption in South Florida, are you referring to your senate opponent?

Well, I dont know. I think time will tell that,” Crist said. “But what Im referring to is the over thirty people Ive had to remove from office. I think we all know whats going on primary in Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County. Enough is enough. And I think the legislature will really focus on this issue to try to restore some public trust.

Tonight is Crists fourth and last state of the state. He is the first governor in Florida who has forgone a second term in hopes of another office.
