FDOT Buy Land From St. Joe

The St. Petersburg Times, the Palm Beach Post, Miami Herald and the Tallahassee Democrat have all come out with editorials denouncing the the Florida Department of Transportation buying $46 million worth of land from St. Joe. Armando Codina owns 50 percent of the company. He gave Jeb his first job in Florida and 40 percent of the profits. That's interesting. Considering, Jeb was known for a lack of success in the private sector.

The FDOT hasn't even appraised the land or figure out where they will put roads, yet. But Jeb's days in Tallahassee are numbered. Coincidence, ofcourse. Readers of this blog know I would never accuse a Republican of doing anything underhanded.

A letter to the editor in the Orlando Sentinel today talks about the Joshua Creek conservation mentioned in the first comment.
