Coming & going: Changes in Gov. Rick Scott's press operation

A charter member of Gov. Rick Scott's administration is moving on after nearly five-and-a-half years.

Scott's deputy communications director, John Tupps, starts work June 1 as deputy chief of staff at the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. 

Tupps, 32, began working in Scott's press shop in February 2011, a month after the governor took office. Tupps' replacement in the governor's office will be McKinley Lewis, 24, a native of Sarasota who is currently communications director for the state Department of Corrections.
