At the time of the prayer breakfast in honor of Gov. Rick Scott’s election to a second term, FAMU President Elmira Mangum appeared to be working to mend fences with him.
Back on August 23, 2014, the Tallahassee Democrat ran a story that included the following comments that Mangum made about FAMU Trustee Rufus Montgomery, who Scott appointed in 2011: “Reminded that Montgomery is closely affiliated with Gov. Rick Scott, who appointed him to FAMU’s board, Mangum responded: ‘What does that say about the people that appointed him?’”
