Fort Lauderdale, FL - Governor-elect Rick Scott today (11-12) named Susie Wiles to serve as his Transition Team liaison to the Legislature and the Governor's office. Governor-elect Scott plans to meet with every state legislator as well as Florida's Congressional delegation before he is inaugurated on January 4th and Wiles and her team will immediately begin reaching out to schedule such meetings.
“The relationship between the Executive Office of the Governor and the Legislature is critical, and nobody is more trusted for this task than the person who guided my campaign to two victories,” said Governor-elect Rick Scott.
Wiles was tapped as Scott’s campaign manager in April and led the team through the successful primary and general election campaigns.
In her liaison role, Wiles will draw on her governmental and political experience that is both diverse and extensive, and includes service in the Executive Office of President Ronald Reagan, the U.S. House of Representatives and two Presidential campaigns. In Florida, Wiles has worked at the highest levels in both the public and private sectors in and is recognized as one of the top communications and public affairs professionals in the state.
