TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott was back in Florida for a workday following recent visits to Great Britain and California.
This time he took his work day to a state park near the home town of the opponent he defeated in the 2010 governor's race, Democrat Alex Sink of Thonotosassa - just outside Tampa.
Scott spent his 11th 'Let's Get to Work' Day working as a park ranger at Hillsborough River State Park on Thursday. The park opened in 1938 and is one of Florida's first state parks.
Taking a page out of former Gov. Bob Graham's political playbook, Scott cranked up the workday after taking office in early 2011 and has worked at jobs mirror the tasks he performed from his youth in public housing to his challenges now as governor.
