Naples multi-millionaire-style town hall meeting

Rick Scott's campaign for governor billed today's event as a "town hall meeting'' on taxes and insurance, though the setting -- a chandaliered ballroom at the swanky Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables -- lacked the feel of the public square. Scott's "Let's Get to Work' campaign banner' seemed a bit incongruous in a room typically associated with $1,000-per-plate receptions.

One campaign staffer said the roughly 60 people in the audience were invited, though another said it was advertised on Facebook.

"I'm really impressed with where he came from,'' said Ramon Crego, the owner of Excalibur Towing in Miami, referring to Scott's humble upbringing.

But Dulce Suarez-Resnick, a Miami insurance agent who serves on Sink's Florida Financial Literary Council, said Scott didn't answer her question about how the state should monitor insurance companies to make sure they are financially solvent.

"He kind of sidestepped the question,'' she said. "I hate to say it because I'm a Republican, but as it relates to insurance, I'd have to tell you that if I had to vote today, I would vote for Sink.''

When did it become SOP to claim you are a member of one political party when you are so clearly not? Who here believes that Suarez-Resnick is a Republican who just happens to serve on a Sink council?

Listen, it's all money stolen from the taxpayers and Rick does have to keep up appearances.

And he should be our Gov.????????????
