Charlie Crist has named Miami attorney Dean Colson, a Princeton and University of Miami law school grad, to be his "special advisor" on all matters related to higher education in Florida - a system dominated by the 11 public universities and 28 community colleges. According to Colson's bio on his law firm Web site, he is a former law clerk for Justice William H. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States whose practice emphasizes personal injury and commercial cases. He is a past member of the Florida Bar Board of Governors, which runs the 11 universities, and chairs the board of trustees of the University of Miami. Former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Colson, a Democrat, in 2000, to Florida’s Commission on Ethics, and later to the Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission. He also served on the Crist-Kottkamp transition team. Democratic House minority leader Dan Gelber and Board of Governors chair Carolyn Roberts lauded the appointment.
