Gov. Charlie Crist's new pick for Broward County Commission -- Republican Al Jones -- starts today and will be sworn in by Broward Judge Elijah Williams at the 10 a.m. meeting Tuesday.
When Crist announced the appointment last Monday, Jones vowed transparency and that he would move to the district soon -- but he wasn't specific before he dashed away from reporters and into his car.
He could not be reached several times since then to answer questions about when he will move to the district. Jones currently lives in Dania Beach, and the county attorney has said he must live in District 9 which spans several cities from Fort Lauderdale to Pompano Beach.
Jones plans to run in the overwhelmingly Democratic district next year.
