Florida's Congressional Black Caucus shared lunch with the governor but, most importantly to the leaders, they shared concerns and ideas.
Members of the Black Caucus dined with Governor Rick Scott and Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll at the Governor's Mansion Tuesday afternoon.
They got the opportunity to address issues that affect the community.
Members agreed with Scott that jobs are a top priority, and discussed several other issues they hope to see the governor tackle.
State Representative Perry Thurston said, "Certainly our Historical Black Colleges and Universities, the appointments of some of the agencies and the leads in the agencies that have been appointed to this point."
Other concerns brought up during the lunch included ways to help keep people out of prison.
Governor Scott told the caucus that he is receptive to their ideas and that everything in his budget focuses on getting the state back to work.
