"fy(Mt PtUCXtfitcQH IS RESPONSIBILITY' SENTRYINSUMNCE The Hardware Mutuala Organizations 417 GARDENIA ST. W.P.B. 833-2663 By REX NEWMAN Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE iAFNi -Latest leaks from Gov. Claude Kirk's office indicate the state's chief executive leans toward appointing a lieutenant governor for the next two years. And if he eventually decides to do so. Sen. L. A. Balalis. R-North Palm Beach, a loyal supporter of Kirk in the legislature, is the leading contender. There exists a difference of opinion among constitutional experts as to what the new-Constitution authorizes in this area The intent discussed on the floor of the legislature at the time of the constitutional revision commission meeting was not that the governor should have the appointive power. But the language proposed in the final draft which the people adopted Nov. 5 lends substantial support to the contention the office becomes active at the time of the effective date of the Constitution. The governor is given the power to fill any vacancy existing which, in effect, would let him appoint his own lieutenant governor who would have to be confirmed by the Senate. Speculation that Kirk and Senate Minority Leader C. W. Young. R-St. Petersburg, would gloss over their differences in order to form a governor-lieutenant governor team in order to insure party unity, were scoffed at by some knowledgeable Republicans here. "The differences were too public and personalities have entered into it." one Republican observed. "That's what the Democrats probably would do in order to unite but we Republicans i haven't matured to that extent." Young has differed sharply and openly with Kirk and has publicly announced he seriously is considering running against Kirk in the Republican primaries of 1970. However. Kirk reportedly does have other lieutenant Kovu fnT possiuiimes fn-mind. They include: Michael O'Neil. Miami tire executive, who serves as Kirk's road board chairman: Ray Osborne, former state representative from Pinellas County who unsuccessfully opposed former State Rep. Jess Yarborough for a place on the Florida Public Service Commission: Milton Weir.
