Speaker Steve Crisafulli announced Monday which members would lead which committees in the Florida House.
Reporting on these assignments is typically straightforward. So-and-so will chair such-and-such committee, etc., etc.
Some reporters injected a little parochialism into their coverage, i.e., The Palm Beach Post‘s John Kennedy wrote that “Democratic-heavy Palm Beach (was) shut out” of Crisafulli’s list.
And then there was the Tampa Tribune‘s James Rosica, who tweeted “Except for Corcoran, Tampa Bay unrepresented in House leadership.”
Except, that is, for Majority Leader Dana Young.
With Corcoran and Young in leadership, Tampa Bay occupies two of the three most important positions in the Florida House.
That ain’t chopped liver.
