Scott high on getting Colorado companies to move here

by John Kennedy | July 23rd, 2013

Gov. Rick Scott has reached out to another Democratic-led state with a pitch to business owners in Colorado that they move to Florida to bask in what he called the state’s “incredible economic turnaround.”

Scott touted Florida’s reduction of $3 billion in debt, rising housing starts and the creation of 330,000 jobs on his watch in a recent “Dear Colorado Business Owner” letter, urging companies to leave the Rockies for the Sunshine State.

Colorado is led by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper. He shares party affiliation with leaders of such states as Connecticut, California, Illinois, Maryland and Minnesota, where Scott has already targeted his “one-way ticket” campaign toward business leaders.

Scott added Colorado after Chief Executive magazine recently wrote that ”anti-business forces won 2012 elections and are delivering on promises.”  The magazine said Colorado is getting worse for business, and its ranking as a business friendly state dropped two places from last year.

  1. Ex-Employee Details Fraud in Rick Scott's Health Care Firm Says:

    “Back then, Scott, now a Republican candidate for governor, was head of the world’s largest health care company. Such parties — including a bash at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg — could cost up to $100,000 and were a standard company tactic for wooing physicians and encouraging lucrative hospital referrals.”

  2. FALSE BOOKS KEPT Says:

    If the megalomaniac Scott can’t keep himself from aggressive and fraudulent tactics, the question is not if, but when.

  3. We're Lucky Says:

    Rick Scott has done a good job. It’s the democrat trolls who keep posting negative comments (and the PBPost which crafts negatives headlines sourced from democrat entities).

    FL’s pensions are solid, people and companies move here for low taxes, the state is NOT in debt.

    If democrats controlled FL, we’d have high taxes, more restrictions & regulations, and the pensions would be UNstable – a future Detroit.

    We’re lucky.

  4. Negatory Comments Says:

    Scott has been in office nearly 4 yrs and has not done anything illegal.

    It’s just the usual garbage written by outraged democrats who lost the election in 2010.

    They praise flip flopper Charlie Crist while blasting Scott.

    Charlie Crist is a PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN and goes where the window BLOWS. He’s a joke.

  5. JOBS Says:

    People are coming to FL for jobs. Check out this article. It is something one certainly wouldn’t read in the Post Times.

    Rick Scott has worked hard for FL.
