The CRC only comes once every 20 years and it is an incredible honor that Will has the opportunity to serve in such an important role for the future of our state. I have enjoyed working with Will over the many years he has served in my Administration and know that he will do a tremendous job in this leadership role at the CRC.”

He did a great job leading legal efforts at the Florida Department of State when I was first elected, and I am glad that he is joining my Administration again where he will undoubtedly serve Florida families well.”
