STATEMENT: Gillum Reacts to Rights Restoration Ruling

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today after a new ruling on Florida’s rights restoration:

“Our current system is decades behind & it must change — now. We must restore rights fairly because your vote is your voice, and too many have been robbed of it over the years. Whether by vote or by court, restoring rights is a moral obligation of a just society. It’s long past time for Florida to put this vestige of the past behind us for good.”
