I later served for five terms as a distinguished member of the Florida House representing Pinellas and Pasco counties in the Florida Legislature. Upon leaving the Legislature, I held the posts of General Counsel and Director of Legislative Affairs under Governor Bob Martinez and as General Counsel at the Department of Financial Services. I served as Chief of Staff during the transition from the Martinez administration to the administration of Governor Lawton Chiles, and I am a former Chairman and two-term member of the Florida Ethics Commission.
