Pam Bondi's campaign chair named to Hillsborough aviation board

TAMPA — Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday appointed Martin Garcia to serve on the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority's governing board — for one week.

Actually it's six days, to be precise.

Garcia, 57, the founder and managing director of the private investment firm Pinehill Capital Partners, was appointed to finish out the term of former board Chairman Steve Burton, who died at the age of 52 on April 21.

That term ends Monday.

But the governor's office said after Monday, Garcia will be reappointed to serve a full year on the board that governs Tampa International Airport.

Garcia, a Tampa lawyer, was the campaign chair of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi's successful run for office in 2010.

Scott has one more decision to make regarding the aviation authority: Dr. Joseph Diaco's term as a member of the five-person board is also about to expire
