Meet Eric Eikenberg



Eikenberg At the age of 31, Eric Eikenberg is already an old hand at state and national government and politics.

He'd better be.

As Gov. Charlie Crist's new chief of staff, Eikenberg must replace George LeMieux, who's worn out after five years at Crist's side and is eager to get back to his family and law practice.

Eikenberg played no role in Crist's campaign, and doesn't have that same bonding experience. But LeMieux considers Eikenberg a brother, and he'll be a phone call away when Eikenberg needs help. (story here.)
