Tallahassee - Governor Rick Scott hosted a Reunion Reception at the Governor's Mansion Monday night. The event kicks off two days of meet and greet events for lawmakers.
The lawmakers include those in office now, and those who help office in the past. The goal of the event is to give current lawmakers a chance to talk with those who used to work in their shoes.
Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, says it's always helpful to touch base with those who once held those positions. She says she often turns to former lawmakers for advice on current legislation. She says when lawmakers work together, each and every Florida citizen benefits.
