WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott made the below statement following the announcement of Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló’s resignation.
Senator Rick Scott said, “My focus is on the families of Puerto Rico. I vowed to be their voice in the United States Senate and that will never change. I’m glad Governor Rosselló finally made the decision to resign. The conduct from the island’s leadership has been unacceptable. Today, Puerto Rico has the opportunity to move forward with new leadership. My hope and my prayer is that the new leaders focus on improving the lives of Puerto Rican families and rebuilding trust by creating jobs, improving education and enhancing security. I will always stand with the families of Puerto Rico and do everything I can in the United States Senate to fight for them.”
