Scott talks transportation at campaign stop in Brandon

“Scott did not speak about tax-for-transportation initiatives currently on the minds of local politicians and voters.

Hillsborough County officials are debating whether to call for a similar referendum, perhaps in 2016. In the midst of shaking hands and taking photos Wednesday, Scott partook in a brief media session where he discussed education, jobs and a meeting he had Tuesday with climate scientists.” See More . . .
