Press Release Summary: Celano Vows Will Vote Against Any Tax Increase In State House

Press Release Body: Vero Beach, FL/April 2, 2008 - Charles Celano, M.D., Republican
candidate for State House District 80 has taken the lead in the race in taking the
Americans for Tax Reform no new tax pledge. Celano vows that if elected to the
Florida State House he will vote and lead the fight against any proposals that would
increase taxes on Floridians. Celano, in taking the pledge, was reinforcing his
conservative beliefs of less taxes and less government which prompted him to enter
this race.

"As a conservative Republican and business owner I know firsthand that increasing
taxes solves nothing in the operation of Florida's government and am proud to take
this pledge of no new taxes," said Celano. "Rather it imposes an undue hardship
upon millions of Floridians who are facing the burden of high insurance rates and
property taxes during a period of economic downturn. In the State House I will vote
against any tax increase proposal and lead the fight to cut government spending and
trim government excess."

In making his pledge, and being the first candidate to do so, Celano continues to
emphasize the Treasure Coast values that he seeks to represent in the Florida State
House of Representatives. Witnessing firsthand the devastating effects that tax
increases have had on Florida's seniors, working families, and businesses, Celano
took the no new tax pledge as a demonstration of the leadership and vision he will
bring to District 80 in finding real solutions to the problems facing Floridians.

A graduate of State University of New York at Stony Brook, Dr. Celano earned his
medical degree at the University of Noreste. He completed his cardiology training
at University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. Like many, he was attracted to the
natural beauties of the Treasure Coast. He has served as Chief of Staff at Indian
River Memorial Hospital, Chairman of the Cardiology Department at Indian River
Memorial Hospital and is currently Medical Director of the Cardiac Rehabilitation
Program at IRMC-Duke Heart Center. He also serves as a liaison to the Duke
University Medical System and the Indian River Memorial Hospital open heart program.
He is a proud member of the Florida Medical Association, Indian River County
Medical Society, American College of Healthcare Executives, and Fellow of the
American College of Cardiology. Earning an MBA from Nova Southeastern University,
Dr. Celano has created several businesses on the Treasure Coast.
