Hello Charlie

December 21st, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

8 years ago, Local Tallahassee Democratic Officials made Jeb Bush feel unwelcome and the city suffered from lack of state funds. Now, the Chamber of Commerce is stepping up to make the new governor feel welcome. It is marking roadways from the airport to the Capitol and making visitors welcome. Chamber President Randy Hanna calls the inauguration the superbowl of Florida politics. “When visitors arrive at the airport they will see something a little different. They’ll see a little bit about Florida History. Anne McKenzie who is the director the the legislative museum has been very helpful in helping us provide a history a inaugural events and Florida politics.”

Tallahassee Mayor John Marks says the City will be prepared.  “The city is committing resources from our public works, traffic engineering, parks and recreation, solid waste, police and utility departments to insure safe and smooth welcome into our community. The city will be marking the occasion with signs from the airport to downtown.“ Says Marks.

The celebration begins January first.
