Gov. Rick Scott schedules morning State of the State speech

rickscott-stateofthestate-2011-stpetersburgtimes.jpgRepublican Gov. Rick Scott will deliver his second State of the State speech at 11 a.m. on Jan. 10, ending the recent run of evening deliveries and returning the speech to a more traditional morning time-slot.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist moved the speech to the evening in 2008 hoping to reach a statewide television audience with live snippets on the 6 p.m. newscasts. Scott scheduled his first State of the State this year at the same time with his communications team citing the same reason.

The schedule for the 2012 speech was noted in a memo House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, sent today to state House members regarding the opening day of session.

Dear Governor Scott~

Please demand BP clean up our beaches and monitor our shores for continued impact from the DWH explosion of April 2010. Please see that our beaches are suffering-what about the wildlife and humans? The well area is still leaking, and continuing to impact the panhandle.
Skytruth.org has reports of BP oil on our shores. See pages 12 on.
The DEP also has reported tons of oil being removed from our once pristine white shores during the past few months. http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/updates.htm

Please don't abandon us like BP and the USCG have.

Thank you for your bravery in caring,

Hope from the Gulf
