Statement from President Galvano Regarding Governor DeSantis Appointing Carlos Muniz to the Florida Supreme Court

Tallahassee —

Florida Senate President Bill Galvano (R-Bradenton) today released the following statement regarding Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appointing Carlos Muniz to the Florida Supreme Court.

“I am pleased to offer my congratulations to my friend Carlos. Today’s appointment to the Florida Supreme Court is certainly the culmination of his lengthy and distinguished career in public service. I had the opportunity to work closely with Carlos during my service as Rules Chair in the Florida House. I know him to be a brilliant attorney and dedicated family man who will serve our state with great distinction in this important role.

“I appreciated Carlos’ comments today on the importance of restrained government, the rule of law, and respect for the value and dignity of each person. I also applaud his comments on the importance of judicial independence and the commitment each judge must make to set aside personal policy preferences. I commend Governor DeSantis on another outstanding appointment to the Florida Supreme Court.”
