Stipanovich gets appointment



Charlie Crist today appointed Mary E. Stipanovich of Destin to the Governor’s Mansion Commission. “Mary is an extremely talented horticulturalist and master gardener,” Crist said. “Her wealth of knowledge will be a great asset to the Mansion Commission.”

Mary Stipanovich worked as manager of the Florida Governor’s Mansion under Governor Reubin Askew.  She has extensive experience in event planning and management. Mrs. Stipanovich is a certified horticulture professional and instructor. She is also the wife of lobbyist J.M. "Mac" Stipanovich, an adviser to the Crist campaign who once upon a time provided far and away the wittiest posts on this blog.
