Today's Letters: Crist needs to keep promises
By LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Published September 2, 2007
On June, I received my homeowners insurance premium notice and, as most everyone can imagine, I was more than just a little displeased; the cost went up as my frown went further down.
In August, I received my Truth in Millage, or TRIM, notice and, as most everyone can imagine, I was shortchanged on my expectations. Sure, I saved a bit, but it was still something that made me grit my teeth.
Also in August, I was pleased to see how much I saved on my auto insurance. But then my mind went "flip" because I had to purchase additional medical insurance because, in October, I lose my personal injury protection.
When I consider all this, I realize that all the talk about saving money and fees was nothing but a terrible tease.
I voted for Gov. Charlie Crist in November, and all those promises of relief, I surely remember. I send this message to Crist: Please, it's time to correct your guidance of the Florida Legislature, because I'm not the only one experiencing such painful displeasure.

Owner isn't only one suffering
Unfortunately, this is not just "a family matter." Other people are involved - laid-off employees, neighboring businesses, the whole city of Brooksville.
Let's hope that Donna Jones can overcome her present difficulties. We wish her well.
