Elections supervisor Victor Crist?



TAMPA — State Sen. Victor Crist is among at least eight people who have said they will seek to Victorcrist replace Phyllis Busansky as Hillsborough County's supervisor of elections. (Story here.)

The governor's office received applications from five other people: Republican David Agliano, 52, who owns the former Valencia Garden restaurant; former state Rep. Bob Henriquez, 44, the circuit administrator for the Florida Department of Children and Families in Pasco and Pinellas; Craig Latimer, 56, a Democrat, who was Busansky's chief of staff in the elections office and is now heading the office until a replacement is appointed; Joe Robinson, 55, a Republican, and an engineering consultant; and Michael van Hoek, 50, a Democrat and a program director for career education at Southwest Florida College.

Former Tampa Tribune editorial page editor Rosemary Goudreau, 53, said she has mailed her application; Lee Nelson, a Democrat who ran and lost to Busansky in the August primary, announced Monday on his Facebook page that he completed his application and sent it to the governor's office.
