Lottery Organizer Dies PACKAGE Script:
Ralph Turlington was already a tenured professor at the University of Florida with an MBA from Harvard when he ran for the Florida Legislature in 1950.
Nat sot: “Our pay pay was ten dollars a day when we were in session.”
He spent the next 36 years shaping Florida government.
Sot: Frank Mirabella
Former Aide
“He brought the best out in people, he brought the best out in legislation,.”
Turlington was in the minority fighting segregation in the mid 1950’s when lawmakers sought to dissolve local school boards if Blacks and Whites were taught in the same school.
Sot: Ralph Turlington
1920-2021
“I was one of  the seven who voted no, and I got an opponent the next year, and that was one of his campaign attacks on me.”
He also took on the pork choppers…a group of small county lawmakers who had a majority of votes in the legislature even though they were elected by less than 20 percent of the population. He won.
In 1985 Ralph Turlington became the face of the citizens initiative to create the Florida Lottery.
Mike Vasilinda Standup
“He argued schools needed more money”
Sot: Ralph Turlington
1920-2021
I don’t think th people are ready to support taxation, additional taxation. But I do believe that this is an alternative the people of Florida will support.”
Turlington also wrote the law creating the state pension system.
Sot: Frank Mirabella
Former Aide
“Which is now the best funded retirement system for public employes.”
And the building housing the Department of Education has carried his name for more than 30 years, even though Ralph Turlington once passed a law which said  buildings could not be named after a living person.

Corcoran Controversy PACKAGE:
FSU has narrowed its search for its next President to nine candidates, but there’s one name sparking controversy…
SOT Sarah Jenkins
FSU Student
“Please do not vote for Commissioner Corcoran.”
During the public comment section on the first day of interviews, Corcoran drew the most ire.
SOT Will Hanley
Assistant Professor of History, FSU
“Corcoran does not understand the tone or content necessary to work at, let alone lead a major research university.”
This letter sent to the Florida Board of Governors by the body that accredits FSU, raised concerns over Corcoran’s candidacy, suggesting his role as a voting member on the board, which will have the final say on hiring the next President, could put the university’s accreditation in jeopardy.
SOT Matthew Lata
FSU Chapter President, United Faculty of Florida
“There are just way too many questions.”
Matthew Lata heads the union representing faculty at FSU.
He says losing accreditation would be a devastating setback for the university.
SOT Matthew Lata
FSU Chapter President, United Faculty of Florida
“Without full accreditation we don’t have access to certain kinds of federal funds and I don’t know how that would impact research, impact student support, but it certainly would do that.”
The Board of Governor’s responded with this letter saying Corcoran, if selected, would abstain from voting on his own confirmation, dispelling any conflict of interest.
Stand up
“Even if that alleviates the commission’s conflict of interest concerns, questions about Corcoran’s qualifications remain and could still result in a loss of accreditation.”
SOT Matthew Lata
FSU Chapter President, United Faculty of Florida
“Leaders of accredited universities must be qualified to do the job.”
The union representing faculty at FSU told us regardless who is picked, they will accept and work with the next President.
