On August 13, Governor Rick Scott invited Texas Gov. Rick Perry to Destin (pictured above with Beth Oltman, President & CEO at The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce). Gov. Scott’s mission was to promote economic development in the two states and have a little fun by holding a small fishing tournament between the two state leaders.
Here’s another great shot from the Destin Fishing Contest with Representative Jimmy Patronis, Representative Matt Gaetz, Gov. Scott, Carol Dover, and Gov. Perry. Governor Scott outcast Governor Perry five fish to three fish. The Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village in Destin housed both Governors for the event – Congrats to the Emerald Grande team on a job well done!
