Q: How do you rate the governor for leadership?

A: 5 out of 5, with 5 being the highest mark.

Q: What are his two greatest successes?

A: Solid, businesslike budgets and state pension reform.

Q: What are his two greatest failures or disappointments?

A: There is still a lack of venture capital for a small or expanding business, and he needs to continue to work on tort reform.

Q: What should be his priorities for the next two years?

A: Solve the Citizens Property Insurance problem; improve international trade; continue to push for private-sector job creation.

Q: Is there any other comment on his first two years that you care to make?

A: It is a pleasure to have an experienced CEO running the state like a business. I have mentioned to the governor and some of our local representatives the public school systems’ massive waste of energy. Millions of dollars wasted.
