Her name is Anna Alexopoulos, and today was her first day as field director for Charlie Crist's Senate campaign in Broward and Palm Beach counties. She hit the ground running by making sure Crist had a good turnout (about 300 people) at tonight's Broward Republican Party meeting.
Alexopoulos is 24 years old, lives in Plantation and has served as president of the Broward Young Republicans for nearly two years. Until this week, she was the senior executive assistant/office manager for Attorney General Bill McCollum's office in South Florida. She also worked as Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti's campaign coordinator in 2008.
"I' think Gov. Crist is the true conservative and the right man for the job,'' she said. "We've heard a lot of rhetoric lately. Speaker Rubio is a fine man and a fine candidate but when you look at the record, the record will show Gov. Crist has done more to uphold conservative messages and conservative values.''
