I am committed to serving the people of Florida.
Charlie Crist is has dedicated his career to serving the people of Florida. He has been a full-time public servant since 2000, working for the people of Florida as state Education Commissioner (2001-2003) and Attorney General (2003-2007) before being elected Governor (2007-2011).
Mr. Crist has never forgotten his humble roots and remains committed to the values that have made America the envy of freedom-loving people for more than two centuries. He was born the second of four children in 1956 in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, the grandson of immigrants. His public service is defined by tireless devotion to the citizens of Florida, a fundamental belief in the goodness of people, and a rock-solid commitment to the core principles that have allowed his family to succeed—lower taxes, less government and more freedom.
