STATEMENT: Gillum Celebrates Eid Mubarak, Condemns Anti-Islamic Comments in Seminole County
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Andrew Gillum for Governor Campaign released the following statement from Mayor Gillum:
“Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrate across Florida! Please join me in wishing our families and friends across our state a peaceful and fulfilling holiday. Unfortunately, as we mark this important holiday, we are confronted with another ugly, divisive elected official who thinks Muslims are harmful to our state and society.
“Let me be clear: as our next Governor, I welcome people of all faiths, and especially Muslims, to the Sunshine State. I was proud to be joined on the campaign trail last weekend by Khizr Khan, whose son Humayun gave his life in service to our country. Mr. Khan spoke passionately about the need for a loving, inclusive society that values the dignity of each one of us. I echo his calls, and urge the Tax Collector to resign his seat at once.”
