Florida’s wildly unpopular Governor, Rick Scott, is starting a new, made-for-the-local-media campaign today. He calls it “Let’s Get to Work Days,” and he plans to spend one day a month doing some kind of not-actually-governing-his-state type of job. Today? He made doughnuts.
It seems like the kind of stunt that’s meant to highlight the lives of hard-working Floridians, although the way the Governor’s press office describes it, it feels more like an episode of “This Is Your (Working) Life:”
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.”
