"For the last two decades, Florida’s Republican Leadership has governed primarily for the wealthy and their corporate friends. Eight years of Rick Scott as Governor has been no different. Scott – former CEO of HCA – denied Medicaid Expansion, which would have provided healthcare to 650,000 Floridians. As housing rates skyrocketed, our public education system came under attack, and our economy continued to only work for the most wealthy, Rick Scott was at the helm. Floridians deserve better than Rick Scott in the U.S. Senate. They deserve someone who will fight for them and their communities in D.C," said SEIU Florida President Monica Russo.
Monica Russo is the founder of 1199SEIU Florida and current President of SEIU Florida.
