Having experienced first-hand the extraordinary leadership former Gov. Rick Scott provided the senior living industry during Hurricane Irma, I am mystified at the posture our current governor is taking. Rick Scott attended calls personally, was succinct, provided an accessible Task Force with immediate resolutions, and moved solutions through the system rapidly. In contrast, the current governor has only been on the initial call – late – and has provided no guidance or assistance to his dedicated state professionals and an industry charged with housing our state’s most vulnerable during the most dangerous contagion in a century. Florida is ground zero for seniors. Governor, we need and look forward to your leadership…please!
