The recent back and forth between Tallahassee City Commissioner Jeremy Matlow and the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce has resulted in a solicitation for campaign funds by Mr. Matlow.
Matlow, in a sweeping attack of the Chamber last week, questioned the Chamber’s response to the public corruption schemes that are the focus of the on-going federal trial.
Matlow called out specific officials in an opinion piece published by the Tallahassee Democrat.
The Chamber quickly responded by censuring Mr. Matlow for “egregious comments and irresponsible behavior.”
The Chamber press release stated that Matlow “abused his position of authority in an ill-fated and shallow effort to broad-brush and taint upstanding local people who are not on trial.”
Matlow, who is up for election in 20220, recently sent out a solicitation seeking campaign funds calling the Chamber’s censure an “irrational response.”
In the solicitation, Matlow said “I believe that better days are ahead, when we admit our faults and work together toward a fair and equitable city we can all be proud of.”
The solicitation is provided below.
