Gov. Rick Scott to visit Bradenton on Thursday

Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday will hold a business roundtable with business leaders from Manatee and Sarasota counties at Mixon Fruit Farms.

About 60-70 people representing the counties' chambers of commerce and tourist bureaus are expected for the event, which is scheduled for 3:30 to 5 p.m. at Mixon, 2525 27th St. E., Bradenton.

"We're excited," said Janet Mixon.

Mixon said the meeting will take place in the deli section of the company's store. The store closes at 3 p.m., meaning tourists and other customers won't be able to listen in.

"They wanted it to be at a business," she said. "They didn't just want a meeting room."

Mixon said the roundtable was organized during the past couple of days.


  1. Please ask Gov. Scott to please take an action about State Atty. Angela
    Corey Post Trial comment when Corey was asked to describe Zimmerman in one word and her response was Murderer . He was found
    innocent and you still have Corey publicly calling him a Murderer . Gov.
    Scott needs to respond and take action. TY

    1. What action could he take? The courts set the murderer free!
