Crist asks for agency heads’ resignations

by Dara Kam | November 19th, 2010

In a typical move as he prepares to leave office, Gov. Charlie Crist today asked for the resignations of his agency heads, their senior staff and Crist’s own workers.

“In an effort to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for Governor-elect Rick Scott’s executive and management team, I requested today letters of resignation from my senior executive staff, agency heads and their management teams, as well as all staff within the Executive Office of the Governor,” Crist said in a statement.

“There is no greater calling than to serve others, and I thank each of the dedicated public servants of my administration for their service to the people of Florida. The efficient transition from one leader to another is a testament to our nation’s democracy, and my administration stands ready and willing to assist as needed,” he wrote.

Scott’s amassed a transition team of more than a hundred individuals from Florida and throughout the country as he prepares to take office on Jan. 4.

  2. I Hope Rick Scot Don't Juat Take The Easy Way Out On This Says:

    The Florida government needs a house cleaning! That is why we the people supported Rick Scott whole heartedly afainst the organized efforts of the PBA, FOP, teachers and all other Florida state employee’s and their organizations! It’s they the government against we the people paying their salaries, insurance, pensions and everything else they desire! Rick Scott needs to pay close attention to all of the various “Inspector General’s” Particularly Like Florida Housing Finance’s “IG” Stephanie Sgouros along with their entire organization. Also, the entire Florida Commission of Ethics requires close scruitney based on the whitewashings of most all of their “investigations” in the last 12 years!

    Rick Scott has got his job cut out for him! If he does not do his homework going in this orgainzed corruption will devour him! Remember they didn’t dupport him, the people tired of this corruption supported him! Organized government corruption support first McCollum, then Sink!

    I Hope:
    Get smart. Over 100,000 Florida state employees out there. You start eliminating jobs and then all of your problems continue with the rest of us. You may be a private sector employee, but wise up to the notion that state government is one of the largest employers we have. If we start eliminating positions left and right, then how will that ever help in Gov-Elect Scott’s “vision” of 700,000 jobs in 7 years? Now I’m no fan of unions or cushy jobs like the ones that Rick Scott will undoubtedly create for his own people either. But you’re talking about firing administrative assistants, janitors and field technicians. The types of jobs that barely pay anything and you’re lucky if you get health insurance. Those are the people that I’d hate to see lose their livlihoods due to this “us vs. the gov’t” mentality. The government is also made up of “we the people”.
