Governor Rick Scott Announces
‘Let’s Get to Work’ Days

On November 14, 2011, in Uncategorized, by staff

Making donuts, cleaning phone booths, delivering newspapers and selling groceries – all are previous jobs of Governor Rick Scott and tasks he will perform as part of ‘Let’s Get to Work’ Days.

Reviving the tradition started by former Governor and United States Senator Bob Graham, Governor Scott will work at businesses throughout Florida that mirror the jobs he performed on his journey from public housing to the Governor’s mansion.

“Like most Floridians, I have worked hard all my life. I started school in public housing and my family struggled financially,” said Governor Rick Scott. “For that reason I went to work at a young age doing everything from delivering newspapers and cleaning phone booths, to selling groceries and working on a ship in the Navy.”

“I commend Governor Scott on his commitment to understanding the hopes and concerns of Floridians by working with them. I found the workdays to give me an unusual insight not only into how people earn their living, but how they live their lives, pursue their dreams and confront their challenges. I hope that Governor Scott will have the same rich experiences as he commences workdays. I would also encourage other public officials to adopt this means of better understanding the citizens they represent,” stated Governor Graham.

Governor Scott will aim to do at least one workday each month.
