Highway 29 Sign No Longer Calling Gov. Scott ‘Bad’ Name
February 10, 2012
The “Welcome to Florida” sign on Highway 29 has been cleaned up — no longer declaring Florida’s governor to be a “prick”.
In mid-December, a little spray paint from a vandal transformed the official greeting to “Governor PRick Scott”. Despite numerous calls reporting the graffiti to the Florida Department of Transportation, the graffiti remained for over a month and a half.
But shortly after NorthEscambia.com published photos of the sign, the graffiti was removed, and the faded and tattered American and Florida flags nearby were also replaced with new flags.

Rick Scott as a “PRick Scott” for over a month and a half prior to these photos being published. NorthEscambia.com photos, click to enlarge.
