General Bob Milligan, Consumer Advocate



General Bob Milligan was named the Consumer Advocate in the CFO's office.

Milligan, 74, is a Republican. Back before there was a CFO, he was it. (He served as comptroller from 1994 to 2002. He said he's ready to come back to government. "I wouldn't have taken the job if I wasn't prepared."

He said Sink called him up over the weekend and asked him if he'd be interested in applying for the job. He said he'd have to think about it. Then he met with Sink this morning and they talked over what the job would involve. General Milligan said he'd take it.

General Milligan served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 35 years, rising to the rank of lieutenant general (3 stars).

He's been living in the Panhandle and now plans to move back to Tallahassee.
