Florida Taxwatch optimistic about governor’s second year challenges
While Floridians have a mixed reaction about the economy during Governor Rick Scott’s first year in office, one organization is optimistic about the current session and year ahead. Florida Taxwatch President and CEO Dominic Calabro says the governor faced an adjustment into politics but feels he is overcoming that learning curve.
Calabro adds although the agenda is achievable, it will have some hurdles to clear. He feels the governor currently faces low poll numbers and redistricting.
Among Florida voters, 34% say the encomy is worse since the governor took office and 16% say it is better while 45% say it is about the same.
