STATEMENT: Gillum Knocks “Election Year Environmentalist” Rick Scott
FT. MYERS, Fla. — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today:
“Governor Scott, a true “Election Year Environmentalist” can pretend he suddenly cares about Florida’s natural resources, but we know the truth. His assault on science, including banning the words “climate change” and cutting the DEP Budget, have hurt our environment, workers, and families. As Governor, I promise to put science first and finally protect our state’s environment.”
Gillum has led on environmental issues during his time as Mayor, including breaking ground on a new 120-acre solar farm in the same week that Donald Trump pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accord.
