Gov. Charlie Crist appointed three people to what will be an 11-member committee to oversee a plan to turn Citizens Property Insurance Corp. back into an insurer of last resort. Former Citizens board Chairman G. Bruce Douglas; Key West City Commissioner Teri G. Johnston; and Merlin Law Group Managing Partner William “Chip” Merlin will help lead efforts to get Citizens back to its original mission. It is currently the state’s largest insurer, with about 1.2 million policies.
