Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum

Mayor Andrew Gillum fought the NRA to defend a law that bans the shooting of guns in parks “where children play and families picnic.” This set off numerous attacks by members of the Leon County Republican Party. In defense of his role as a local elected official, Mayor Gillum stated “we were elected for a reason, people trust their school board members, their mayors, their council members to create policies that reflect the beliefs and values of their communities.” Progressive leaders continue to fight for their causes that best serve their constituents.
