FLA Dems Chairman Rod Smith Statement on Governor Rick Scott’s State of the State

Tallahassee, FL – Today, Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith issued the following statement in response to Governor Rick Scott’s State of the State address:

"Rick Scott is moving our state in the wrong direction on the issues that matter to Florida’s families,” said Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith. "Instead of creating jobs and strengthening our economy, the Governor has pursued an extreme social issue agenda that has protected corporations and special interest, while promoting policies that destroy the middle class. The Governor is attempting to buoy his sagging poll numbers by rehabbing his public image. Although the wrapping may be different, the package is still the same - unaccountable, reckless government beholden to the special interests and his political cronies.”
