Today, Governor Charlie Crist announced working mother and small business owner Annette Taddeo of Miami as his running mate. Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant made the following statement:
“I have known Annette Taddeo for years, and consider her a true friend and a strong ally in the fight for Florida’s middle class. Annette’s story is America’s story. The daughter of a World War II fighter pilot, Annette has become a community leader in Miami and a nationally recognized businesswoman.
“A loving wife and mom, Annette knows the struggles of middle class families. She’s seen first hand how Rick Scott has made it harder for small businesses and working families to succeed, while those at the top do better than ever. She’s the kind of leader I hope my own daughter looks up to, and the kind of Lt. Governor that Florida’s middle class — and everyone working to get into the middle class — deserves.”
An active member of the Democratic Party, Annette Taddeo has served as Chair of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, a Vice-Chair of the Florida Democratic Party, and is a member of the Democratic National Committee.
