Crist cuts his barber into state govt



Troup Charlie Crist tapped his longtime barber, Carl Troup of St. Pete, to the state barbers' board. Carl Troup is the partial owner and operator of Pyramid Barber Shop in St. Petersburg. Mr. Troup attended St. Petersburg Junior College and graduated from Sunstate Barber College.

“Carl has worked as a barber for almost forty years,” said Governor Crist. “I am confident his experience will be an asset to the state and members of his profession. He is a fine man and a great Floridian.”
