Gov. Charlie Crist today announced that Anthony De Luise will become the new press secretary, taking the job vacated by Erin Isaac, who is now communications director. Crist also promoted Lisa Meyer to deputy communications director.
De Luise, who once served as deputy press secretary for Gov. Jeb Bush, had been working as director of public information for the Florida Public Service Commission and had been press secretary for the Department of Environmental Protection. Meyer, who spent 17 years as a high school English teacher prior to going to work for the state, most recently served as Crist's chief speechwriter.
