Gov. Rick Scott to visit Sarasota to raise money for political committee

Florida Gov. Rick Scott will be in Sarasota on Thursday to raise money for his "Let's Get to Work" political action committee.

A fund-raising reception is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Marina Jacks on the Sarasota waterfront.

Event co-chairs include Manatee builders Carlos Beruff and Pat Neal and their wives.

The suggested donation is $500 per person and $1,000 per couple. But as the invitation distributed by the Sarasota County Republican party notes, "maximum contribution by law is unlimited."

On its website, Let's Get to Work says it hopes to "foster accountability in government by identifying and communicating about conservative public officials and candidates who have track records of creating jobs, balancing budgets, and holding government accountable."

In two years, Let's Get to Work has raised almost $18 million, including $11.3 million from a trust controlled by the governor's wife Annette, according to reports filed with the Florida Division of Elections.

Beruff has donated $25,000.

To RSVP or for other details, contact Maryann Grgic at or 941-301-1929 or Debbie Alexander at 850-508-6080.
