McCollum addresses TaxWatch, Sink to appear on video, Rubio coming to lunch

by George Bennett | December 2nd, 2009

PALM BEACH — Attorney General and 2010 Republican governor candidate Bill McCollum called for low taxes, “common-sense regulation,” improved education and “meaningful, significant litigation reform” in remarks to Florida TaxWatch’s annual meeting this morning at The Breakers.

Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, the presumed Democratic nominee for governor next year, couldn’t attend the meeting because of a scheduling conflict but plans to appear by video, a spokeswoman said.

Former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio is scheduled to deliver the luncheon keynote speech today. His GOP Senate primary rival, Gov. Charlie Crist, was invited but can’t appear because he’s getting ready for the special legislative session that begins Thursday.

  1. George Says:

    Why is Charlie Christ so afraid of showing up all the time is it because someone will expose all his lies to the citizens of Florida. he lied to us our taxes are higher than ever. Senior citizens and single moms are losing homes because of property taxes. he has cooperated in the destruction of the real estate market. remember his nick name is charlie the liar.

  2. Where was Charlie? Says:

    Crist was getting ready for Special Session? Really? How come Senate President Jeff Atwater (who called the Special Session) was able to attend the event and speak to local and state leaders? No. Governor Crist is way too afraid to speak to the same crowd as Marco Rubio. Crist cowered away from the opportunity last time they (Marco and Charlie) both were in town. Get the picture, Floridians? As they say in NASCAR, Charlie Crist just “ain’t got nothing under the hood.”
