George LeMieux, business liaison



George LeMieux, Gov. Charlie Crist's ex-chief of staff, has a new task as Crist's liaison to the Council of 100, a Georgespeaks nonpartisan group of high-powered business leaders. In a letter written a few days before he left to rejoin his old law firm, LeMieux notified council members that Crist wants him to work with the council to find ways of helping business in 2008.

"I am available to speak with you by phone or visit in person if you have ideas that you would like to share," LeMieux wrote in the Dec. 27 letter, which is here. The council's chairman is Tom James, chairman and CEO of Raymond James Financial.
