It's Official! Governor Crist

Florida's new governor, Charlie Crist, was sworn in yesterday, despite it being a National Day of Mourning, in remembrance of former President Gerald Ford. But it wasn't up to Crist, who wants to be known as the "people's governor." Florida State Law requires the governor-elect be sworn in the first Tuesday after the first Monday of January, no ifs, ands or buts.

I wasn't able to see the swearing in *sigh* but caught the tail end of the parade.

In Crist's inaugural address, he listed some of his priorities as governor of the Sunshine State:
Reduce property taxes and address the skyrocketing property insurance rates.
Attract new business to Florida.
Provide world-class education.

Living up to the name as the "people's governor," there was no lavish inaugural ball this year. Good going! I didn't have a thing to wear.
