Panelists

Gary Yordon

After eight years as a host and producer on public television, Gary was elected to the Leon County Commission in 1986. During his dozen years in public office, he served twice as Commission Chairman and six years as Chairman of the Tourist Development Council.

Known for his ability to build consensus, Gary was the only county commissioner in Florida ever to be nominated for the John F. Kennedy Profiles In Courage Award for his efforts to protect Florida’s water resources. The Florida Jaycees twice named him Florida Local Elected Official of the Year.

After leaving public office Gary returned to his roots and began hosting the popular CBS Television political program, “The Usual Suspects.” Today, the show remains a political staple in the state of Florida. In 1998 Gary founded the media production and political consulting firm The Zachary Group.

A five-time Emmy Award winner, Gary designs media for corporate and non-profit clients, government agencies as well as public sector amendments and referendums. He has directed the design and marketing for more than 200 local, state and federal campaigns and has been awarded The Silver Medal by The American Advertising Federation for lifetime achievement in Advertising.

Gary is a national award-winning columnist for Gannett Newspapers and has served as a Florida correspondent for CNN. He has authored his first book, Driving The Road of Life With A Flat Tire. Gary plays outfield for the national amateur baseball team, The Tallahassee Bombers and is the former seed-spitting champion at the Jefferson County Watermelon Festival.
