Crist appoints former Bush staffer to college board

Gov. Charlie Crist on Tuesday appointed Robert Fernandez to the Miami-Dade College board of trustees. Crist also reappointed Peter Roulhac, chief executive officer of the Orange Bowl Foundation, to another term on the board.

Fernandez, who now works for the powerful Akerman Senterfitt law firm, worked as deputy general counsel to former Gov. Jeb Bush. He was one of five Republicans who ran for the Florida House seat that was vacated by Rep. Gus Barreiro. Fernandez came in second to Frank Carollo, who ultimately lost to Rep. Luis Garcia.
