Ron DeSantis said ( about Osama bin Laden ) : "Martin County Superintendent Laurie Gaylord told me today that she viewed reopening her schools as a mission akin to a Navy SEAL operation. Just as the SEALs surmounted obstacles to bring Osama bin Laden to justice, so too would the Martin County school system find a way to provide parents with a meaningful choice of in-person instruction or continued distance learning," External link

It’s not indicative of current trends, much less a record day of fresh infections in Miami,” “Stale test results shouldn’t be used by policymakers to determine the way forward for students, parents, workers and businesses in the here and now. I’ve instructed the Department of Health to remedy this. The point of collecting data should be to illuminate, not obscure, the actual facts on the ground. And I expect that to be fixed very shortly” External link

Ron DeSantis said : ”Obviously I don’t want Deloitte getting contracts, personally, because we’re investigating what’s happen with the employment system. " In May, DeSantis ordered the state inspector general to investigate the contract awarded to DeLoitte in 2011, when now Republican Sen. Rick Scott was governor. The contract was originally worth $40 million, but the cost ballooned to nearly $78 million after 14 contract amendments. The contract for a Medicaid database was awarded to DeLoitte Aug. 3 over four other vendors, but has since been protested. DeSantis said part of the reason Deloitte won the bid was it dropped its price, and he said the issue with the unemployment system wasn't necessarily a factor in the award. “They dropped their price so dramatically, that it’s not clear to me that at that point they could not be denied it on neutral grounds. Maybe if you inject this issue into it, but I’m just not sure if they’re allowed to do that within the law,” External link

Ron DeSantis said : ”Obviously I don’t want Deloitte getting contracts, personally, because we’re investigating what’s happen with the employment system. " In May, DeSantis ordered the state inspector general to investigate the contract awarded to DeLoitte in 2011, when now Republican Sen. Rick Scott was governor. The contract was originally worth $40 million, but the cost ballooned to nearly $78 million after 14 contract amendments. The contract for a Medicaid database was awarded to DeLoitte Aug. 3 over four other vendors, but has since been protested. DeSantis said part of the reason Deloitte won the bid was it dropped its price, and he said the issue with the unemployment system wasn't necessarily a factor in the award. “They dropped their price so dramatically, that it’s not clear to me that at that point they could not be denied it on neutral grounds. Maybe if you inject this issue into it, but I’m just not sure if they’re allowed to do that within the law,” External link
