Crist: I'll back citizens tax-cut petition, too

Gov. Charlie Crist held another presser for the Jan. 29 vote on property-tax cuts at a citizen's home -- this time at the Kendall house of Stephanie Fay, a mother of two and teacher of government economics at Coral Gables High.

True to her field of expertise, Fay said the tax-cut package wasn't enough and that she'd back a citizens' petition drive to cut more taxes.

"So will I," Crist chimed

House Speaker Marco Rubio, whose office yesterday said he had a potential scheduling conflict, didn't show. He also didn't stand by Crist's side after the tax-cut package was passed by the Legislature.
