As former Florida Gov. Reubin Askew said, “They don’t have schools for a governor, so I’m learning the hard way as I go along.”
With only nine weeks between election day and inauguration, Florida TaxWatch has shortened the learning curve for Governor-elect Ron DeSantis and his new administration with the fourth edition of its “Governor’s Transition Decision Handbook.”
Led by former Gov. Bob Martinez, a group of TaxWatch officers and members have compiled insights from 11 former governors, three former lieutenant governors and two past Senate presidents on how to maximize the transition period and early days in office.
