STATEMENT: Les & Gwen Miller Endorse Gillum

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Andrew Gillum for Governor campaign released the following statements today:

“We are proud to endorse Mayor Andrew Gillum as the next Governor of Florida. His bold, ambitious plans for Florida are just what our communities need. He will help transform Florida into a state where working people can finally make ends meet, where every Floridian can get quality and affordable health care, and every child can get a high-quality public education.

“Mayor Gillum’s campaign represents a historic moment in Florida’s history as he becomes the first African-American Democrat to qualify for the ballot for Governor. We are deeply moved by what this achievement means not just for us, but for our children, grandchildren, and all those who have seen this state change over the past decades. In August the choice is clear: Andrew Gillum will be a Governor of the people, and for the people.” — Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller and former Tampa City Council Chairwoman Gwen Miller

“It is a deep honor to have the endorsement of Les and Gwen Miller in this race. They’ve dedicated their lives to lifting up not just those in the Hillsborough community, but people from all walks of life across this state. They are tried and true public servants, and their support means a great deal to this state, my family, and me. I look forward to campaigning alongside them this summer and fall.” — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum
