Gov. Rick Scott is holding 12:15 p.m. fundraising conference call Monday to discuss fundraising goals and a “February Statewide Finance” fly around the state, according to an email sent Friday by Mike Fernandez, the chairman of Scott’s finance team.
“Governor Scott and I thank you for you friendship and commitment to ensure Florida’s future is steady and focused on ensuring a brighter future for all Floridians,” wrote Fernandez, a South Florida health care executive who has already given more than $1 million to Let’s Get to Work, a committee supporting Scott’s re-election.
The email was sent to other members of Scott's finance committee. The 12:15 p.m. time-frame is set aside for "staff and call time," according to Scott's daily schedule.
The letter also asks recipients to attend a March 2 fundraising pow-wow at the Little River Plantation in Havana, which, the letter says, will be the “evening before the Governor’s State of the State address.”
Scott did not raise any money for his campaign account in December, the first month he was a filed candidate. Let’s Get to Work, though, already has roughly $25 million in the bank.
I hope all is well with you. Governor Scott and I thank you for your friendship and commitment to ensure Florida’s future is steady and focused on ensuring a brighter future for all Floridians. Your dedication to our State and Governor Scott has formed the backbone for the upcoming election. As you know the 2014 election affects not only the future of Florida, but the entire nation.
I ask you to please join Governor Scott and I this coming Monday, January 13th, at 12:15 p.m. EST for a Statewide Finance Leadership call to provide a campaign update, some immediate short term fundraising goals as well as information regarding an upcoming February Statewide Finance fly around.
Also, if you would kindly Save the Date for an intimate evening with fellow members of the Rick Scott for Florida Finance Leadership team at my plantation, Little River Plantation in Havana, Florida the evening of March 2nd. Governor and Mrs. Scott have asked us to gather for some quality time with one another as well as with them. As many of you know, this will also be the evening before the Governor’s State of the State address.
If you could kindly confirm your participation to Meredith O’Rourke at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would greatly appreciate it. The dial in will be shared upon RSVP.
Please feel free to reach out should you have any further questions and I look forward to seeing you on the road to Victory!
