Representative Esteban Bovo (R) was one of several Florida Legislative members that was invited to a cozy meeting with Governor-elect Rick Scott in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Bovo told me that he was honored, humble and a bit suprised when he recieve the invitiatiion to meet with the Governor-elect. Bovo also added that he thought the meeting was “ unique and interesting”,and that is was refreshing to see the Governor reach out and afford him and the others the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns. ”Charlie never did that“
But the representative also stated, that now Scott had to deliver on the jobs that he has talked about this past election cycle. One of Bovo’s main focus in the next legislative session is the problem of property taxes. Like many others around the state, Bovo says,”property taxes are strangling people”, and come this next legislative session, he will be proposing a bill that will lessen the taxes bearing down on property owners.
