In a previous post, I advised that I would start paying more attention to local politics; namely in my area but also around the country. So I wanted to spotlight a local politician in the state of Florida who’s running for Governor.
Meet Andrew Gillum.
Andrew Gillum is running for Governor to rebuild Florida into a state that is welcoming and safe for everyone. Born in Miami, FL, to a school bus driver and construction worker, Gillum was the first in his family to graduate college. He went on to become the youngest person in history elected to the Tallahassee City Commission, and later on became Mayor. With 15 years of experience in Public Service, Gillum developed a thriving innovation economy, beat the gun lobby in court to protect commonsense reform, helped lower violent crime in the city by 8 percent, and stood up to President Donald Trump and Governor Rick Scott in defense of immigrants.
Some of the issues that Andrew Gillum is tackling include Criminal Justice Reform, Economy/Jobs, Education, Environment, Gun Safety, Healthcare, Immigration, and Women’s Rights. For more information, please visit his official website. You can also stay up-to-date with his campaign and connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The best of luck to you, sir.
Until Next Time…
