Gov. Rick Scott in West Palm Beach today; part of teacher pay raise ‘victory tour’by George Bennett | May 6th, 2013
Gov. Rick Scott made an across-the-board $2,500 pay increase for teachers one of his top two priorities for this year’s legislative session. Lawmakers added some strings, but approved $480 million for pay increases, so Scott is declaring victory.
Scott is embarking on a five-city “victory tour” to promote the raises today, Tuesday and Friday.
The governor will be in Sunrise this morning, then at Wynnebrook Elementary School in West Palm Beach at 11:45 a.m. before heading to Ponte Vedra this afternoon.
He’ll also tout the raises in Ocoee on Tuesday and Tampa on Friday.
