FORT LAUDERDALE - A newly-formed alliance of Florida Republican activists announced today an online petition campaign calling upon Governor Charlie Crist to run for re-election as chief executive of the Sunshine State.
The On-Line petition, available at www.KeepCharlieCrist.com, implores the popular governor to stay on the job and keep his pledge to “make property taxes drop like s a stone.”
“For weeks, we’ve heard speculation that Governor Crist may run for the US Senate,” co-founder Martin Stockdale of the Florida Conservative Reform Caucus (FCRC) said. “In today’s economy we need Charlie Crist’s strong leadership right here at home.”
Javier Manjarres of the Conservative Republican Alliance (CRA) said “Crist must stay in Tallahassee to keep his pledge to cut property taxes and lower insurance rates.”
The CRA and the FCRC, in league with the Ronald Reagan Young Republican Club of
Miami Beach, plans to collect signatures of thousands of average Floridians urging Crist to run for re-election as Governor and keep his promises to the voters of Florida. The group will deliver the Petition to the Governor’s Office at a press conference at the end of the legislative session.
The group lists decreasing property taxes, lowering insurance rates and Everglades revitalization all as reasons why Governor Crist must stay in Tallahassee. Additionally, Keep Charlie Crist backers see the governor’s consensus-building skills as key to keeping the government out of gridlock.
“We truly believe we need Charlie Crist in Florida, and we think the vast majority of Floridians agree with us,” Ronald Reagan Young Republican Club founder Nick Kakanis of Surfside said. “We need him to stay on as our Governor to bring Florida back stronger than ever.”
