Ahhhhh, but we once came so close. Gov. Claude Kirk tried diligently to move the capital here in the late '60's. To this day, there is a plaque in the new Capitol in Tallahassee commemorating his failure.

Wow, they didn't try very hard to disguise the "symbolic monument" either... Is it me, or does it seem like the OW never has anything nice to say about Orlando?

You can thank their editor for that!

Orlando as the state capitol is in interesting proposition. In all ways, it makes sense. It will never happen.

Nice little jab at Creative Village in there (at the site of the Amway Center) lol

You would think our master budgeteer Rick Scott would see the cost effectiveness of moving it to Orlando. Florida runs just about all of it's agencies in a de-centralized manner which means each area has to send people up to Tally quite frequently for meetings. In other words, he wouldn't have had to sold those planes if Orlando was the Capital, right?
