Now add no transparency.
Associated Industries of Florida hosted a closed-door breakfast fund-raiser with Rick Scott Friday. For more than an hour, the Republican candidate for governor talked about his agenda for creating jobs, improving schools and having a viable private insurance market in Florida — an AIF priority.
AIF was willing to allow a reporter to listen, but the company said Scott’s campaign vetoed the idea because he wants fund-raisers to be private. “He talked about the business environment in Florida, and how he wants to make it No. 1,” AIF’s Barney Bishop said afterward. “He talked about helping companies that are already in Florida grow before he talked about bringing companies to Florida.”
Next up, the health care lobbyists!
Rick Scott wants to be the CEO of Florida, Inc. We’ve already seen how he runs a business. We’ve paid enough of a price to his GOP and RPOF investors as it is.
