Burgess going from RPOF to Meteoric Media Strategies
Republican Party of Florida Communications Director Brian Burgess is leaving the party to work with Brian Hughes at Meteoric Media Strategies. The move reunites the pair, who worked together previously for the party and for Gov. Rick Scott during the early part of his administration. “Excited to be expanding, even more so that it’s with my friend and a person I respect immensely,” Hughes tweeted Tuesday, confirming a Florida Times-Union report of Burgess’ move. Burgess went to work for the RPOF in September of last year after working as Scott’s chief spokesman. He had worked for Scott starting in 2009 as a consultant on Scott’s effort to prevent the federal health care law from being passed, and then worked on Scott’s gubernatorial campaign before joining the governor’s office.
