Celebrating Hispanic Leaders in Business: Past, Present and Future
Florida Hispanic Heritage Month 2012 September 15 - October 15 "Celebrating Hispanic Leaders in Business Past, Present, and Future"
The diversity of Florida's people and cultures truly makes our state one of the most vibrant in our country. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we take time to recognize how Florida's growing Hispanic population enriches our state and strengthens Florida's cultural and economic ties to Spain, Latin America and beyond.
As communities across Florida celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, it is my privilege to honor Hispanic entrepreneurs and business leaders throughout our state. As with all business owners, their hard work to fulfill their dreams of owning a business is part of what makes Florida such a great state. I applaud today's Hispanic business leaders, as well as those throughout Florida's history, for playing a vital role in providing jobs for Floridians and strengthening our communities.
As Governor, I am working to make Florida a place where the American dream of economic prosperity is possible for everyone. I am focused on making Florida the best place for businesses to grow and expand by eliminating unnecessary regulation, holding government accountable and ensuring every child has the opportunity to get the best education possible. Working together, with all of Florida's business leaders, I know we can grow opportunities for all Floridians to prosper. -Rick Scott
