Florida Gov. Rick Scott came to East County yesterday for an informal business roundtable, at Mixon Fruit Farms.
In Mixon's cafeteria, Scott took questions from about 60 area business leaders about small businesses, education, drugs and the Florida Stand Your Ground law.
Scott was scheduled to speak from 3:30 to 5 p.m. but cut his visit an hour short to attend a 9 p.m. meeting with students protesting the Stand Your Ground law in Tallahassee.
