April 5th, 2017 by Mike Vasilinda

Legislation wasn’t the only thing cooking at the State Capitol this afternoon.

“They decided that they want to do something in Tallahassee that has a flavor of Miami and that’s why we did paella and it’s grown from like three hundred people now to like two or three thousand people.”

Governor Rick Scott along with other legislators came out to help serve the dish mad up of over 1,000 pounds of rice, chicken and seafood.
