Republican gubernatorial hopeful, Rick Scott arrived in Bay County Sunday evening and will spend the day Monday in Florida’s panhandle.

His campaign bus rolled into Panama City around 8:30 Sunday evening. He met with a large crowd of supporters and community leaders at the Shrimp Boat restaurant in old St. Andrews.

Sunday is Rick Scott’s fifth day on a statewide bus tour. He says he has a plan to help northwest Florida’s economy.

"What I’ll do is work with local businesses and local elected officials to look at how we can work with their local economic development centers. Look at how we can move companies here but we can make sure that companies here are prospering and growing. By reducing regulations by reducing their taxes and having a governor that’s supportive of them that will help them grow," said Rick Scott.

Monday will be the last day of his tour. He will spend the morning in Panama City at a meet and greet and roundtable event at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.

From there, he'll make stops in Destin, Santa Rosa Beach and Pensacola.

    I remember Mr. Scott very well. He was over HCA when Columbia took it over. He turned a good hospital in to a horrible place to work, only cared about the money, not the patients or staff and on top of that he was let resign with a big bonus when some of his counterparts had to do prison time. No way will I vote for him to govern our state.

Hey Rick, the first thing you have to do to bring new business to this area is make sure the local tight nit small business group will be supportive of it. They wont allow new business in this area that offers up higher pay and better benefits they do. They are afraid they will have to match the new offerings in order to keep their employees, and that wont allow them to continue to oppress their employee pool. Its just another local G.O.B. tactic.
