Gillum Completes Bull Sugar Questionnaire; Has Strongest Environmental Record in Field
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum was proud to complete the Bull Sugar 2018 Questionnaire (click here).
Mayor Gillum has the strongest environmental record of any candidate in this field:
During the same week that Donald Trump withdrew our country from the Paris Climate Accord, Mayor Gillum broke ground on a new 120-acre solar farm in Tallahassee that will triple the City’s solar energy capacity.
Gillum led the charge to ban fracking in Tallahassee, and he has consistently opposed big oil pipelines including the Keystone XL and Sabal Trail pipelines.
Mayor Gillum is proud to have the endorsement of progressive champions who know his record on the environment like Senator Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida, and Indivisible.
Under the leadership of Mayor Gillum Tallahassee has reduced its carbon footprint of electricity users in the city by 20%.
As both Mayor and City Commissioner the Mayor has worked tirelessly to implement and improve programs at the local level like: free residential and commercial audits, low-interest energy loans, and community outreach programs.
Mayor Gillum has received no sugar money and is not accepting any sugar money. Instead of simply taking a hollow campaign pledge, Mayor Gillum has met with workers in areas like Belle Glade who are most impacted by the sugar industry. He believes that these workers need true solutions for better working conditions, wages, and outcomes.
