'The LeMieux Report' debuts



George LeMieux unveiled "The LeMieux Report" Friday.

The former chief of staff and chief strategist for Gov. Charlie Crist thinks he has discovered a gap in the information marketplace and plans to fill it with a weekly one-page summary of commentary and analysis on legal, business and political issues. The problem, as LeMieux sees it, is a glut of news that takes busy executives too much time to sift through.

Published by his law firm, Gunster Yoakley, the premiere edition's topics include Crist's new market-based health care initiative, an anti-consumer glitch in the Save Our Homes tax cap and an economic stimulus package likely to surface in the legislative session. The free weekly report will be e-mailed to movers and shakers and be posted on the web site.

"I'm trying to make it a one-page, one-stop shop for business leaders in Florida," LeMieux said. "The news they need to know to be in the know." He said Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer suggested the idea to him, and he is developing it with after-hours help from Katie Gordon, a party spokeswoman.
