Gov.-elect Rick Scott is winding up three days of behind-closed-doors briefings from his nearly 200 transition team members to prepare for his move into the governor’s office on Jan. 4.
Scott’s meeting in private with his teams although First Amendment Foundation lawyers say the meetings should be open to the public.
Scott’s aides told Palm Beach Post reporter John Lantigua the meetings on the 12th floor of the Florida Atlantic University-Broward College Higher Education Complex were off-limits. He was advised to wait in the lobby to interview attendees inside the public building.
When Scott’s briefing from his economic development team ended, Lantigua caught some of the attendees on the 12th floor before being asked by a Scott aide to leave.
