Florida Jobs Are Taking Off

Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s slogan was “Let’s Get To Work.” His former company is taking his advice… but someplace else.

The chain of health care clinics started by Gov. Rick Scott is moving some jobs out of Florida, a financial newspaper in Jacksonville reported.

Scott, who has staked his legacy on job creation, said Wednesday it was “disappointing” to learn his former company, Solantic, was moving its corporate headquarters to Nashville.


Solantic spokeswoman Mandy Villalva told the Financial News & Daily Record in Jacksonville that the company’s executive team was moving to Nashville and that employees had been notified.

Villalva told the Jacksonville publication that said she did not know how many employees would be leaving Florida.

Funny how things like that work out.
