Davis names statewide advisory committee



In his quest to become Florida's next governor, Jim Davis on Thursday announced a 112-member statewide advisory committee.

“I’m for Jim Davis because he is honest, direct and is not afraid to take on tough issues,” said Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio. “His appeal here locally has always been across party lines - he works well with everyone. Jim will work hard in Tallahassee to represent all Floridians and seek common sense solutions to tough problems.”

Names include former Speaker of the House Peter Wallace; Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Olson; Tallahassee Mayor John Marks; Congresswoman Corrine Brown and, of course, Bob Graham.
