Florida's Governor-elect Rick Scott will be sworn into office this week and some local residents are hopeful a new administration will be a fresh start for the sunshine state.
Some folks in Tallahassee say they're not sure what to expect in the next four years because Scott lacks political experience and they're not familiar with his policies. But, others are hoping the new year and the new Governor will bring about positive changes.
"I think it's going to be a great opportunity for someone that has new and bright ideas to come in and possibly make some changes for the positive for our state," said Chris Jensen.
"Well, I'm going to take an optimistic point of view and hope that things will be on the up swing. I hope that he will look at the economic issues as well as the health issues and make a very big difference," said Joyce Bridges.
Scott will be Florida's 45th Governor. Be sure to check WCTV.TV for continuing coverage of Rick Scott's inauguration.
