City Commission Candidate Rick Minor Rolls Out Endorsements


Tallahassee City Commission candidate, Rick Minor, rolled out a number of high-profile endorsements in a campaign press release issued on March 29th, 2018.

Minor, who is running for city commission seat 3, said in the release, “It’s a great honor to be endorsed by these 25 Tallahassee leaders,” said Rick Minor. “As City Commissioner, I’ll work closely with these people – and everyone in our community – to restore confidence in City Hall.”

Public officials highlighted in the release include City Commissioner Gil Ziffer, Leon County School Board member Rosanne Wood, former Public Defender Nancy Daniels, former Leon County Commissioner Cliff Thael, and Marjorie Turnbull, who represented Leon County, District 9, in the Florida House of Representatives from 1994-2000.

On the Above the Fold radio show, broadcast on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 A.M. on Realtalk 93.3 FM, Minor said that he did not view himself as an insider and committed to strengthening the city’s ethics ordinance.

    This guy is another John Marks. He served as John’s adviser for many years. Why doesn’t he just go ahead and get Marks and Mattox to endorse him because that is exactly what we are going to get. Unbelievable!!

    Rosanne Wood endorses you? Good grief, as an elected school board member she is a stooge for Rocky Hanna and little miss inferiority complex who runs curriculum in Leon Schools. Rick, disown any affiliation from the school board that allows Rocky Hanna to spew vile vulgar language and numerous ethics violations that go unchecked.

    Rick Minor saying he’s not an insider is like Stormy Daniels saying she’s still a virgin.

    I see TR was quick to report that John Daly MAY have a conflict with the City and JDA and the League of Cities – where is that same concern here. Minor has stated he will remain CEO of second harvest -an agency that receives thousands of dollars from the city – including salary for the CEO yet no concern about that ?? A City Comm. that votes for his own salary at his “second” job ?? COME ON TR get it together and report ALL conflicts

    It was a good interview. Thanks TR for making it possible. Rick Minor claims not to be an insider. As said above, he worked for John Marks and has said he respects Scott Maddox.

    He said he was not part of the “Secret Society” or “Inner Circle” or something to that effect. Well folks, if you are the CEO of a non profit in Tallahassee, and your wife is the CEO of the “Chamber for non profits” (his words), you are in the inner circle.

    Local government and non profits are joined at the hip. They have been scratching each others backs and egos for nearly 20 years.

    Want to do business with the City? Want some consideration for your project or idea? You better know some non profit board members. Many of them are the commissioners themselves, or relatives, or favored lobbyists. You had also better openly and monetarily support causes that may not be your own.

    It is a closed little town. Only the insiders in the inner circle get the support. See ‘Rick Minor”

    Tallahassee needs new blood on the city commission that is totally divorced from the past.

    I wonder if Dailey and Minor had this planned. These insiders do not know which side of the bed they want to sleep on. They only know that they want to sleep together. Time to wake them up. Vote all of them out.
