Let’s Get to Work tops $1.1M in January

The “Let’s Get to Work” political committee that will play an important role in Gov. Rick Scott’s re-election effort has raised about $1.17 million in January, according to the group’s website. That haul comes in addition to about $5.2 million that the committee raised in 2011 and 2012. Members of the Collier family, which has long been prominent in the Naples area for its real-estate and business interests, contributed $200,000 to the committee in January, the website indicates. Other large donors included the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, which contributed $30,000; Gulfstream Park Racing Association, which contributed $25,000; and Alico, Inc., which contributed $25,000. Scott has not opened a personal campaign account for the 2014 race, but Let’s Get to Work is expected to be an important vehicle to help finance the re-election bid.
