Change Florida's State Name To "Tom Petty"

This petition had 36 supporters

Thomas Earl Petty was born on October 20, 1950 in Gainesville, Florida. With a musical career spanning over four decades that consisted of 18 top 10 hits and 20 studio albums, Mr. Petty holds the title of Rock N' Roll legend and is, without a doubt, the greatest thing to ever come out of the state of Florida. In fact, in September 2006, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers received the keys to the city of Gainesville, Florida. Changing the name of The Sunshine State from boring old "Florida" to "Tom Petty" is the least that we can do to honor him.
