Crist taps Miami-Dade fireman for Emergency Management post

Gov.-elect Charlie Crist created a new deputy director spot at the Division of Emergency Management to hire Ruben Almaguer, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's administrative operations chief. Crist also reappointed Craig Fugate to lead the department.

Other appointments: former Crist AG staffer Monesia Brown will head the Agency for Workforce Innovation and Jacksonville City Councilman Kevin Hyde will head the Department of Management Services, where he promised he'd "review" the troubled Convergys human-resources outsourcing contract.

A press release just issued by Crist's team, though, doesn't have what he said he'd give out: Salary information.
