This should help with the Tallahassee City Commission dysfunction.
Today, City Commissioner and Florida League of Cities President Gil Ziffer issued a press release endorsing Gwen Graham in the race for the Democratic nomination for Florida governor.
Ziffer said that “Gwen knows that local elected officials understand their communities best,” and noted her defense of home rule.
The endorsement comes from a colleague of another candidate in the race, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
Ziffer has previously attributed some of the dysfunction of city commission activities to the fact that Gillum is spending a lot of time running for governor.
“We have become way too dysfunctional and if any of you have been to or watched our commission meetings, you can tell we’re not getting along real well right now,” Ziffer told several dozen Democrats during a community meeting.
Ziffer recently dropped out of the race for Tallahassee mayor and decided to end his career as an elected city official.
Ziffer joins Leon County Commissioners John Dailey, Kristin Dozier and Leon Soil and Water Commissioner Tabitha Frazier in endorsing Graham.
