Gov. Rick Scott spoke Monday, June 22, at Main Street Mower in Winter Garden, to congratulate the small business on placing third in the 2015 Bright House Networks Regional Business Awards.
Stu Hawthorne, son of Main Street Mower's owners Stan and Sherri Hawthorne, introduced Scott.
"(Scott) believes that we the people know how to spend money best, and he backs up his beliefs with his policies," Stu Hawthorne said.
Scott mainly discussed recent Florida tax cuts. There were $400 million in tax cuts this year, including a $200 million cut on cellphone service communication tax and a $40 million cut on sales tax for textbooks.
"Let's make sure we always remember what we want to do every year, and that is cut our taxes," Scott said before leading the audience in a cheer of "cut our taxes."
Scott also mentioned job creation and Florida's recent drop in unemployment rates.
"This state is on a roll," he said. "There is no place like home, and that is Florida."
