Mayor Andrew Gillum’s office released a statement that said Gillum’s trip on a private plane to Tampa included city business. Gillum’s city calendar does not support the statement.
On August 10th, 2017 Tallahassee Reports broke a story about Mayor Andrew Gillum taking a trip on a private plane owned by a developer with city lobbyist Adam Corey and his Chief of Staff Dustin Daniels.
On August 18th, 2017 the Tallahasssee Democrat reported that Gillum was in Tampa on city business. The Mayor’s office reported that Gillum was there to learn about some of the work the developer was doing to advance wrap-around social services in schools and housing developments.
However, TR has confirmed that Gillum’s city calendar on the day of the flight, February 12th, 2016, is blank. There is no reference to city business. An image of Gillum’s calendar obtained by TR several months ago is shown below.
TR has requested any documents and emails that show the meeting in Tampa was related to any city business.
