Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer last week sent out an e-mail from his personal e-mail that told people how they could reach George LeMieux, aka "the maestro" and former chief of staff for Gov. Charlie Crist.
"Dear Friends,'' reads the e-mail. "Many of you have recently asked me for George LeMieux's new contact information and what professional services George will be providing since his recent departure as Chief of Staff for Governor Charlie Crist. George has joined the law firm of Gunster, Yoakley, and Stewart P.A., which has opened a new office in Tallahassee. The firm provides legal and governmental services. As you know, George's (sic) has extensive experience serving as Deputy Attorney General, Campaign Manager for Governor Crist, and then serving as Chief of Staff and primary advisor to the Governor. George can be reached at 215 S. Monroe Street, Suite 618, Tallahassee, Florida 32301. The phone number is 850-521-1980. I've also attached a link to his professional biography.
I am sure that George would like to hear from you. Thanks, Jim Greer."
When asked about it, LeMieux said he did not ask Greer to do it, but said Greer did it to respond to people who were asking where LeMieux could be reached. "He offered and I was appreciative,'' said LeMieux. "I think he's trying to let people know where I am since I left the governor's office."
