Governor Rick Scott seems to think that he can “Grandfather in” (grandfather clause) a new law

The cost to Florida taxpayers to defend Gov. Rick Scott is growing.

And yet,

NO IMPEACHMENT, WHY?

Why is that do you suppose?

Governor Rick Scott seems to  think that he can “Grandfather in” (grandfather clause)

a NEW LAW?

(((NOT)))!

If a business is begun under one set of laws it has an expectation that the law will continue. If the law changes the precedent in which the business operates they may continue “breaking the new law”

by operating under a grandfather clause (legally).

All future businesses of the same industry would be subject to the laws on the books at the start of their new business.

Governor, this has nothing to do with what you are doing with our tax money!

What you are doing is against the law.

As part of the fight over the land, it was alleged that

members of the governor’s staff had set up and use private emails to conduct state business with the intention of keeping their work out of the public eye,

a violation of the state’s sunshine laws.

Earlier this summer, the governor and members of the Florida Cabinet paid $55,000 to settle a case over open meetings violations stemming from the firing of FDLE Chief Gerald Bailey.

In both cases, not only were settlements reached using tax dollars, but attorney’s fees were also paid using tax dollars.

WFTV political analyst Rick Foglesong. “The Governor violates the law and then he adds insult to injury by using the public treasury to pay the fine as if the treasury is his own political piggybank.”

The governor paid $165,000 and $139,000 for outside council in the two cases; with cabinet members paying another $225,000 according to documents posted online.

Because of media attention, Scott’s office has started posting open records requests on its website.

Figures for payouts are detailed in a series of requests from media outlets across the state.

“If there is no punishment, if the person responsible doesn’t pay the fine then there is no deterrent, no reason to think the person won’t do the same thing in the future,” says Foglesong.

Florida Lottery secretary resigns under fire

thQJRY0E3Y

A little Monkey see, Monkey do?

O’Connell, who received an annual salary of $141,000, was appointed by Scott in 2011.

TALLAHASSEE

Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell, one of Gov. Rick Scott’s original agency heads,

has resigned in the wake of media reports of questionable travel expenses and absenteeism.

O’Connell has been under pressure for some time.

Her agency faced severe criticism last year over poor financial management and a fraud investigation into unusual, recurring lottery payouts.

The Palm Beach Post, in a series of reports last year,

found suspicious patterns of winnings at the same retail outlets.

More recently,

Politico reported this week that O’Connell racked up nearly $30,000 in travel bills

and took nine weeks of vacation in 2014, the equivalent of 20 percent of all business days,

at a time when key staffers in her office were under investigation.

http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/stateroundup/florida-lottery-secretary-resigns-under-fire/2243206

Committee member Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, think that she has been doing a great job?

Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, a longtime member of the Senate Regulated Industries Committee, said he considered O’Connell a friend.

Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, also a member of the committee, said

he thought that O’Connell was one of several Scott agency heads who could face difficulty being confirmed in the 2016 session.

Those who were not confirmed in 2015 and are not confirmed next year will lose their jobs.

Tom Delacenserie, Governor Rick Scott’s newest appointee as the Florida Lottery Secretary was hired by Governor Scott in 2000.

Prior to joining the Florida Lottery,

Tom spent 28 years in consumer product sales as a Representative, District Manager, Regional Manager, and National Accounts Manager. During his sales career,

Tom has been responsible for both Regional and National headquarter accounts including Target, K-Mart, Walmart, Walgreen, and Kroger?

“952 jobs that’s about 1/2 million tax dollars per job?”

Way to save our state money Governor?

Do you see a person wise in their own eyes?

There is more hope for a fool than for them.

“In 2003 Governor Jeb Bush spent more they $5 hundred million dollars to attract biotech to Florida.

Since then 952 jobs have been created,

that’s about 1/2 million dollars per job?”

How one big promise Jeb Bush made to Florida’s economy has yet to deliver?

Christopher heath investigates taxpayers money

As seem on WFTV Channel 9 News 08/30/2015 with anchor Janai Norman.

Last night Christopher heath discovered,

 “when you follow the money you will often find Big Checks and Small Gains!”

Florida has already spent millions of your tax dollars all in the name of bring jobs to the state?

When you follow the money you will often find Big checks and Small gains

Governor Rick Scott gave Digital Risk 1.2 million dollars and it has already had two rounds of layoffs cutting more than 500 jobs from this one location alone?

Osceola paid $150,000 with Colt to get out from under this deal that Governor Rick Scott made with Colt and Colt has filed Chapter 11?

Cheryl Grieb Governor Rick Scott appointed,

Osceola County Commissioner said,

“we will eventually get this money back!”

I say,

“HOW?”

“They have already filed Chapter 11!”

Governor Scott gave Colt another $50,00 at a chance to get the money back?

Dr Rick Foglesong WFTV Political Analyst stated,

 “pumping money into these kind of jobs is more like playing political politics then priming the pump!”

Dr Rick Foglesong WFTV Political Analyst stated,

“When you add it all up what you have is giant subsidy for businesses.”

  1. (a sum of money granted by the government or a public body to assist an industry or business so that the price of a commodity or service may remain low or competitive)

Christopher heath,

“Florida has been trading money for jobs for more than a decade!”

Christopher heath,

“In 2003 Governor Jeb Bush spent more they $5 hundred million dollars to attract buy o tech to Florida since then 952 jobs have been created, that’s about 1/2 million dollars per job?”

Governor Rick Scott at the Economic Growth Summit with corporate incentives and recently criticized the Florida Legislator for not legislating more money.

Christopher heath,

“Only 12 out of 26 companies have met their gold’s!”

Christopher heath,

“Still Governor Rick Scott has called on the state to put up another $200 million dollars to bring companies in.”

Taxpayer money should not be used to pick winners and losers!

Held at the premium indoor club in the Citrus Bowl, the event was prefaced by a protest by National Action Network Central Florida Chapter president Lawanna Gelzer, other organizers and members of the community, who were later invited inside.

Gelzer says the event, which was advertised as using

“innovative communication strategies to foster ongoing citizen engagement and conversation”

between city residents and police,

did not include the community.

COMMISSIONER’S/MAYOR’S/GOVERNOR/

Commissioner hopes to clean up Orange County neighborhoods

Zellwood Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson, a Republican, wants to clean up Along U.S. 441 in far west Orange County, the Zellwood community.

The hidden secret and there is always a hidden secret in Florida,

is the Tens of Thousands of public Tax Dollars to be used to clean up businesses along U.S. 441

that they have refused to do themselves?

How does this help the tax payers?

Wouldn’t it be a much wiser to spend our hard earned tax dollars, all Tens of Thousands Dollars of it, to repair our infrastructure, roads and bridges?

P.S.

And there is always a P.S.

Commissioner, Nelson, After graduation worked in his family’s business, Nelson’s Florida Roses.

Nelson then started Nelson Insurance Services in 1995 as a means of providing his family’s business with insurance, and it expanded from there.

In 2002, he was appointed to the Orange County Planning and Zoning Commission, and served as its Chairman in 2006.

Commissioner hopes to get backing to help clean up Orange County neighborhoods

Posted: 8:56 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28, 2015

An Orange County commissioner wants to clean up rundown parts of the county.

Commissioner Bryan Nelson is planning to help several communities transform, if the commission approves funding for his projects.

Twenty miles away in Pine Hills, residents say they would welcome some help fixing up the neighborhood.

The Big Florida Swindle

Some of my FOLLOWERS are making joke of my picking on our government officials?

OH—-WELL—-!

So, here is one more of plenty to come for you to chew on!

Joke this?

Our Florida Government Officials from our REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR on down to our REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGRESS,

have just diverted more of our tax dollars that the vast majority of Floridians voted (Amendment #1) for Environmental land to pay for their operating expenses at state agencies.

The Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative, Amendment 1 was on the November 4, 2014 ballot in the state of Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure was designed to dedicate 33 percent of net revenue from the existing excise tax on documents to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund.[1]

http://ballotpedia.org/Florida_Water_and_Land_Conservation_Initiative,_Amendment_1_%282014%29

Conservation funds Amendment to its operating expenses at state agencies , in short, to help pay for Pan Bundy and governor Rick Scotts court cases!

Environmental groups fighting the state about land conservation funds filled an amendment to its lawsuit to use the budget surplus to buy land buying land program.

http://article.wn.com/view/2015/06/22/Conservation_Groups_File_Amendment_One_Lawsuit_in_Florida_Ea/

State lawmakers disregarded the voters that passed Amendment #1 last year properly fund conservation land purchases suit called for the Florida legislature to use the surplus to buy a conservation land program.

The corruption continues in Florida!

Is this what we or any wildlife loving human would want on a committee paid and charged with the protection of our neighbors in Florida or any place else?

Well this is the type of ‘people’ that Florida’s Governor  Rick Scott is stacking the deck with, in our state!

Robert Spottswood, a wealthy hotel builder and attorney from Key West

I would like to be a fly on the wall with a camera when this person must vote between his pocketbook (building hotels and such) and saving a species?

Spottswood has contributed money to politicians of both parties,

including $10,000 to the governor’s Let’s Get to Work Committee in 2013.

He also is one of Scott’s appointees to the Commission on Health Care and Hospital Funding.
