Mayoral candidate Dustin Daniels has secured the support of three prominent local African-American leaders in his campaign to lead the city of Tallahassee for the next four years.
Tallahassee Reports was sent an image of a campaign postcard which was recently placed on the windshields of cars at local churches.
The postcard features pictures of former city manager Anita Favors, Mayor Andrew Gillum, and civil-rights attorney Ben Crump.
Below the pictures, the card reads:
For sixteen years, we have had a progressive Mayor that has made our community a priority. On August 28, 2018 we need to elect a Mayor that will continue to be a voice for all. We believe Dustin Daniels will be that Mayor!
The message is referring to the “sixteen years” served by former Mayor John Marks and current Mayor Andrew Gillum.
Also, Daniels featured a video on his campaign Facebook page with Favors, Gillum and Crump. Daniels wrote on his Facebook page:
I’m so very grateful to have iconic community leaders like Civil Rights Attorney Ben Crump, Mayor Andrew Gillum, and former City Manager Anita Favors put their faith in me. They are trailblazers, community builders, and drum majors for justice. They have been active and courageous for the issues and fights that matter. and I’m incredibly honored to have their endorsement.
In addition to Daniels, John Dailey, Michelle Rewhinkel Vasilinda, Joe West, Carrie Litherland and Norris Barr are candidates for mayor.
