Press Release Summary: Lauds Governor Crist For Suggesting Suspending Gas TaxSuggests Legislature Should Suspend Gas Tax From Now Through The End Of The Year
Press Release Body: Vero Beach, FL/April 16, 2008 - Charles Celano, M.D., Republican candidate for State House District 80 praised Governor Charlie Crist for addressing the issue of rising gas prices that is affecting all Floridians and strongly endorsed the Governor's suggestion that the state gas tax be suspended. The temporary suspension of the state gas tax would bring immediate relief to Florida families and businesses who are being crippled by the rising cost of gas at the pump. Dr. Celano suggested that the State Legislature suspend the state gas tax from now until the end of the year.
"Families and businesses throughout Florida are being affected by the daily cost of gas at the pump," said Dr. Celano. "Our economy is being crippled by the cost of gas as businesses are curtailing operations, families are curtailing shopping because of the price of gas, and tourists are canceling Florida trips because of the cost of gas. Suspending the state gas tax for the remainder of the year will bring immediate relief to Floridians and help stimulate the economy. I hope Representative Mayfield and Senator Haridopolos will act upon this immediately and that my opponent will join me in supporting this."
The state gas tax has been suspended in the past by the State Legislature. Dr. Celano's position is consistent with his strong stand against new taxes. He was the first candidate in the State House District 80 race to sign the Americans for Tax Reform's no new tax pledge and challenged his opponent to sign it after she proposed raising the state sales tax.
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.
