Crist is 2 for 2 on Florida Supreme Court Justices
Just over a month after his fantastic selection of Charles Canady, Jr. to join the Florida Supreme Court, Governor Crist hit another home run. Today Crist announced that he is naming Judge Ricky Polston to fill another vacancy on the Court. Judge Polston is currently a judge on Florida's First District Court of Appeals in Tallahassee and he is a judge committed to the interpretation of law as opposed to the creation of law by judicial activism.
I have to admit, upon his election I had some major concerns with the types of judges Governor Crist would appoint, but with his selection of Judge Polston, and he previous selection of now Justice Canady, he has my full trust on the issue. With two more current Justices hitting the forced retirement age this year, Crist will get to select another two Justices for the Court. This means that within the first few months of 2009, Governor Crist will have selected a majority of the Court and based on his first two picks, that is a very, very good thing.
