Florida has quite a history with hurricanes. These storms are an enormous test for our state and local leaders. Governor Rick Scott passed that leadership test while being a firm, steady, consistent voice for citizens.
Scott’s constant presence on television and social media in the days leading up to the storm prepared our citizens for the wrath of Irma and clearly helped convince many to evacuate at appropriate times.
There is no doubt this Governor’s leadership helped save lives during Irma. It is one more reason for Floridians to be confident we can overcome anything Mother Nature throws at us.
