Fishkind Commentary: Economic Policies and Gubernatorial Promises


Florida’s last employment report before the November 4th election came out Friday, prompting 90.7’s economic analyst Hank Fishkind to focus on the proposed economic policies of gubernatorial candidates Governor Rick Scott and challenger Charlie Crist.

This week’s discussion began with incumbent Governor Rick Scott, since the issue of job creation has been a mainstay in both his campaigns.

90.7's Nicole Creston asked Fishkind if the numbers in Florida’s latest jobs report tell us anything about Scott’s promises or his performance on this issue

As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
