Christian Coalition director steps down to work on campaigns

From a press release:

The Christian Coalition of Florida announced today that Dennis Baxley [former Republican House member] will be stepping down as Executive Director effective June 1, 2009.

"Over the last 18 months, we have had an exciting time building the organization and increasing communications with our members. We have produced and distributed 3 million voter guides and collaborated with other pro-family organizations on a whole range of issues. And there is still opportunity for Florida's Christian Coalition to grow in size and influence," Baxley said. "I am grateful to have had this platform to touch public policy."

Dennis Baxley is an Ocala business owner who served in the Florida House of Representatives. Mr. Baxley will be leaving Christian Coalition of Florida to work with political campaigns.

"Dennis has been an enormous asset to the organization during these difficult economic times. The Board and staff are very thankful for his hard work and leadership over the past 18 months. We all wish him well in his future calling," said Bill Stephens.

Former Executive Director Bill Stephens will serve as interim director until a new Executive Director is appointed by the Board of Directors. Bill Stephens served as Executive Director from 2003 to 2007 and has remained on staff as administrator and lobbyist.

John Giotis could be the replacement. He's been with the CC for a long time, played a big role with the Marriage Amendment, worked a bunch of campaigns, and appointee for Bush in DC.
