STATEMENT: Gillum Says Putnam is “Out of Touch” with Florida’s Working Families & Teachers
Putnam Said Pay is “6th on the List” for Teachers

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement:

“Only a multi-millionaire like Adam Putnam would think that teachers don’t want or deserve a raise, and he’s sadly out of touch with Florida’s working families and teachers. I’m the only candidate with a plan to invest at least $1 billion in our public schools, students and teachers to make sure our kids are ready to succeed, and to ensure our teachers start their careers with a salary of $50,000 as they do their critical work.”
