Scott’s net worth up slightly to $83.8 million

by John Kennedy | July 1st, 2013

Gov. Rick Scott’s net worth ticked upward slightly last year to $83.8 million, according to his latest disclosure reported Monday by the Florida Commission on Ethics.

Scott reported a $218 million net worth when he officially became a candidate for governor in 2010. But the latest filing, reflecting his assets and liabilities as of Dec. 31, reflects an increase of about $1 million over last year.

Scott’s $9.2 million gulf-front home in Naples gained some value last year. So, too, did his investments. Scott’s biggest single asset reported was $72.8 million held in a blind trust. He listed no financial liabilities or money owed.

The Republican governor spent $73 million of his own money in his 2010 campaign. But Scott has said he has no plans to dig into his own pocket again when he runs for re-election next year.

His Let’s Get to Work political fund-raising committee has already collected more than $8.6 million this year.

Scott, who is required by law to submit an annual report on his finances, reported that he had a net worth of nearly $83 million at the end of 2011. That’s down from the $103 million net worth he reported at the end of 2010.

Scott has refused to accept a salary while governor. But he does list as a primary source of income $3.1 million received last year from his blind trust.

    Good deal! Very happy to hear it….

  2. Mike Says:

    After the crappy job of governor he is doing, he should be worth 83 cents

  3. bito63 Says:

    TRICKY RICK SNOT figured he could make a killing spending $73 million to become governor and rip off Floridians like he did Medicaid, It didn`t work, He is not spending his own money on re-election because he knows he doesn`t have a chance, Good riddance, Don`t let the door hit you in the rear on your way OUT!!!!!!

  4. Dick scott Says:

    fact that hes refusing to spend his own cash in 2014 says it all….the rick scott experiment was a complete failure.

  5. Dick scott Says:

    get these religious, idiotic republicans out of office in 2014. FL needs to break their stronghold. Also how about legalizing weed in 2014…..

  6. Hitlery is TRASH! Says:

    He obviously hasn’t learned the art of grand theft like a liberal will teach you..Look at Obozo, the ultimate traitor, he goes into office with a $1 million net worth and a job paying pre-tax $400k a yr–4 yrs later, he’s worth nearly $13 million and he bought an estate valued at more than $40 million–

    That’s Chicago Thug style thievery there!

    Those Chi-Town thugs have looted everything!

    You want to learn how to steal, go to liberal, they are the masters of theft!

  7. spence Says:

    That would be far short of what he will spend on the re-election campaign.

  8. Tea Lady Says:

    We The People of The Great State of Florida are blessed to have an astute businessperson as our governor!

    As an astute businessman, Governor Scott understands the Pillars of Pro$perity:
    * Fiscal Responsibility
    * Free Markets
    * Constitutionally Limited Government

    We The People can count on Governor Scott to make financially sound decisions and policies, much like a good CEO does!

    Let’s all rally around Governor Scott! 2014!! And later, President Scott (or President Rubio)!

    Join The Tea Party! Unlike so-called “intellectuals”, We understand the fundamental tenets of economics and sound policy! =)

  9. bito63 Says:

    Hitlery, In other words what you are saying is that you right wing nuts never learn anything, No surprise there.
    Teabaglady, I see you are off your meds. Would you be TRICKY RICK SNOTS wife? And you are worried about becoming poor? Go back to your shrink, He hasn`t helped you one bit so far. You fell back to your DELUSIONAL state of mind.

  10. 700,000 Says:

    Maybe he can create some of those 700,000 jobs by hiring people to cut the grass at his mansion. That would be a good start

  11. Wilard Says:

    Well at least someone is getting ahead in this country, and it might as well be our leader Rick Scott, you can’t fault someone who beat the legal system when implicated in the medicare fraud scandle, in fact the wondeful people of Florida thought so much of Scott that they elected him governor after he beat the system, now thats what I call a leader.

  12. $cott Sux Says:

    Maybe he can help pay my recent 16% increase in Citizen’s Ins premium that comes on top of the 32% increase the year before. Rick Snott and these thieves are laughing at the fools who put him n office. The man should be in jail.

  13. Tea Lady Says:

    This reminds me — one good reason to re-elect Governor Scott is accomplish one piece of unfinished business: depopulating Citizen’s Insurance!

    For too long, We The People of The Great State of Florida have been in the business of insurance! Nowhere in the Constitution of The Great State of Florida does it say that our state was intended to be an insurance company!

    We should let Free Markets (and free market rates) to prevail! That way, those living closest to the ocean do not receive a SUB$IDY, courtesy of The Taxpayers of The Great State of Florida.

    Those living closest to the ocean SHOULD pay more. No one should have to SUB$IDIZE the LIFE$TYLE of another! That’s un-Constitutional!

    Join The Tea Party! Free Markets are “where it’s at”! =)

  14. Scott is a Crook Says:

    As soon as Rick Scott is removed from office his net worth will triple from all the shady business deals and favors he has done while in office for all his 1% cronies. Lets not forget where he got that original $218 million, stolen from taxpayers with Medicare fraud from the company he ran.
    F the Tea Party and Rick Scott. Miserable miscreants.

  16. Tea Lady Says:



    The Constitution of These United States grants me (and all patriotic Americans) the rights to Free Speech, regardless of your pseudo-intellectual, so-called “liberal” beliefs to the contrary.

    Join The Tea Party. Unlike so-called “liberals”, We don’t attempt to silence our critics. We celebrate Free Speech rights!

  17. comic relief Says:

    I like the tea ladies input. She is comic relief. Like the fat drunk guy who farts in the middle of the wedding.

  18. Frankie Says:

    So, bito, DickScott, et al, still think your boy Charlie has any chance of beating Gov. Scott? Ha! Ha! Ha!

  19. Ted the Nimble Says:

    Congrats to Mr. Scott! The libs will be up in arms at his financial success. Like the true communists they are, they will want to takes it.

  20. Ted the Nimble Says:

    Scott for President! Run the current amateur/celebrity in chief out of his orifice.

    There is just something about a baby food jar that makes you want to prolong its usefulness. Its stout cuteness spurs the imagination. If you have children, there is a good chance you also have a stash of empty baby food jars hidden somewhere. Here are several fun craft ideas using empty baby food jars, so you can finally justify keeping them all this time. Storage ContainersBaby food jars make great storage containers for individual colors or types of beads, buttons, and other crafting tools. Make sure the jars are clean and dry and fill with craft tools of your choice. They are pretty enough to store on an open shelf.Candle HoldersBaby food jars make great candle holders for tea lights or votive candles. You can also make candles from hot beeswax, melted crayons, or melted candle wax scavenged from used candles by pouring it into a baby food jar over a suspended wick. Tie the wick to a heavy washer on one end and a toothpick on the other end. Rest the toothpick over the opening of the jar with the wick and washer dangling inside. The wick should be just long enough for the washer to lie flat and the wick to remain taut.Jar GardensMake a jar garden with baby food jars. Youll need a small amount of clay or florist foam, silk flowers, glue, and a small swatch of fabric. Unscrew the cap from a clean, dry baby food jar. Glue the clay or florist foam to the lid. Arrange tiny silk flowers in a design on the foam. Screw the jar onto the cap, being careful to get all the flowers inside the jar. Glue or tie a square of fabric around the jar lid for a pretty presentation.Shakers and Sound MakersEmpty baby food jars make great baby toys. You can make shakers or sound makers by filling the baby food jars with different items. Try rice in one, nuts and washers in another, beads in another, and more with pennies, nickles, dimes, and quarters. These toys are pretty enough to be displayed. Take care to always supervise children when they are using these toys. Baby food jars are made of glass and can break, and many of the fillers are choking hazards.DispensersBaby food jars make cute dispensers for salt, pepper, cinnamon-sugar, and homemade spice blends. With a drill press or awl, poke holes in the jar lid. Fill with desired spice, and screw lid and jar together tightly. Try garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper for a great steak seasoning. You can also use this kind of dispenser as a glitter shaker.Air FreshenerPoke holes in the jar lid with a drill press or awl. Fill jar with potpourri, room freshener gel, or essential oil and water. Try lemon and grapefruit essential oils for the kitchen, lavender and lemon essential oils for the bedroom, and rose potpourri with rose oil instead of a sachet in your linen cabinet or clothes drawers.Snow GlobeHeres how to make an innovative gift out of a baby food jar. Youll need a strong water-proof glue, large grain glitter, water, and a toy or object that is small enough to fit inside the baby food jar. It needs to have a flat surface that can sit flush with the baby food jar lid. Glue the object to the baby food jar lid and let dry for several hours. Add 12 to 1 tablespoon of glitter to the baby food jar. Fill the baby food jar with water, leaving about 14 inch of space at the top. Put glue around the inside edge of the jar lid and screw lid on, carefully inserting the toy. Flip over the jar and youll see glitter “snow” falling around your toy inside the globe.
