Lately, The Herald has published several articles about the unpopular Gov. Rick Scott. It is heartwarming to know that among his successes, Florida’s debt has decreased and the state’s budget has a surplus. His plan to give salary increases to public school teachers convincingly teaches us how good he is in safeguarding government finances. That is, generate funds first before spending.
Gov. Scott’s ability to balance the budget alone is already a big success and derogatory remarks from any state employee about problems with their salaries, pensions and other benefits would only sound ridiculous if not uncivilized.
Undoubtedly, his strong leadership in our most trying times will make him great enough to become popular when he seeks another term.
