Monday Open Thread | Meet Andrew Gillum

It’s Labor Day. The beginning of ‘Election Season’.

Well, let’s meet some candidates this week.

He came out of nowhere last week to win the Democratic Nomination for Governor in Florida.
His name is Andrew Gillum.

If you like what you see, why don’t you tell others, and we can give him a collective financial boost. We know the power of small donations.

Meet Andrew

Andrew Gillum is running for Governor to rebuild Florida into a state that works for all of us. He knows everyone deserves good-paying jobs so they can support their families. He wants to protect and expand Floridians’ access to quality, affordable healthcare, especially people with pre-existing conditions. He knows we need to strengthen our public schools and end the culture of high-stakes testing.

As Governor, he will fight against the special interests that are standing in the way of taking real action on climate change, and he will always ensure Florida is a welcoming and safe place for everyone, no matter where they come from, who they love or how they identify.

Andrew was born in Miami where his mother drove a school bus and his father was a construction worker. He was the first in his family to graduate college and he went on to become the youngest person in history elected to the Tallahassee City Commission, before later becoming Mayor. He has a proud record of 15 years in public service.

As Mayor, Andrew developed a thriving innovation economy, beat the gun lobby in court to protect commonsense reform and stood up to President Trump and Governor Rick Scott to defend immigrants.

Under Andrew’s leadership, Tallahassee advanced workforce training programs for underrepresented workers as one of only 50 cities in the nation included in President Obama’s TechHire program. Andrew also helped lower violent crime in the City by more than 8 percent through increased investments in law enforcement, community policing, re-entry programs, and an expansion of social service funding.

Mayor Gillum is now running for Governor because we need a fresh approach to solving the problems of our state and get our government back on track. He lives with his wife R. Jai and their three children in Tallahassee, Florida.

I went looking for information about him, and found this wonderful page about his wife- R. Jai.
Found these videos.

They were on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. Now, play the video in the tweet, and tell me if you don’t observe what I do about Mayor Gillum. I think the women here will get what I mean.

    What upsets those against the KAP deal?
    What makes them.nuts?

    1. Kap was getting PAID all along. That he was getting a check to protest America.
    2. He is about to GET PAID. There are people, like me, who would never go out of their way to get anything Nike, but I will, for Peanut or my other niece and nephew. People who support Kap, and are willing to vote with our $$$$.

    And, they can’t do shyt about what WE do with OUR money. That OUR money counts as much as theirs.

    President Obama told y’all (@num1_fan) Tweeted:
    Andrew Gillum’s strategy was about voter turnout. His FAMU family, wife and surrogates fired it up! He didn’t worry about gaining the handful of remorseful Trump voters.

    We’re Gaslit Nation. Our country—especially for the last three years—has undergone what’s known as ‘gaslighting.’ To gaslight somebody means to manipulate someone by psychological means into questioning their own sanity…
