Tallahassee, Florida (AP) --
Gov. Charlie Crist is getting a familiar list of candidates to chair the Public Service Commission for the rest of the year.
The PSC Nominating Council agreed Monday, October 25 to send Crist the same list of finalists he used to appoint a successor to Chairwoman
Nancy Argenziano for the next four years.
That means Crist can appoint Tampa lawyer Julie Brown, his
choice to replace Argenziano for a full term, to fill the rest of
her term ending Jan. 1.
Argenziano, a Republican, resigned Oct. 12 so she could endorse
Democrat Alex Sink for governor.
She also endorsed Crist, a former Republican running as an
independent for the U.S. Senate, and Democrats Dan Gelber for
attorney general and Lorrane Ausley for chief financial officer.
