David Royse has spent 17 years writing about Florida, 15 of them focusing on public policy, politics and the Legislature, first for The Associated Press and then as the founding executive editor of the News Service of Florida. During that time, he covered government, including more than 15 legislative sessions and the administrations of four governors, and political stories, including the deadlocked presidential election of 2000 and every legislative election for more than a decade. Royse has also worked for the AP in Miami and Louisville, Ky., as well as for newspapers and radio stations.
