Provided below is Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey’s comments on Twitter following Kristin Dozier’s entrance into the mayoral race.
From Mayor Dailey:
Kristin Dozier has just filed to run against me for Mayor and she’s being propped up by the same dark money interests that have been spreading lies about me and my family. But we will not be deterred.
I’m proud to stand on my record as Mayor.
I’ve made job creation and ethics reform a top priority. We’ve created thousands of good high paying jobs and passed the strongest ethics reform package in the state.
Together our community has weathered a once in a century global pandemic and the worst economic downturn since the Great Recession – and we did it by taking swift and decisive action to help our neighbors, local small businesses, and nonprofits.
We’ve invested in our neighborhoods, our roads, our sidewalks, and our parks, and we’re not finished.
And what has Kristin Dozier done?
She has repeatedly VOTED NO on voter-approved projects to improve our roads, sidewalks, parks, and flood mitigation. Over & over again she has VOTED NO to bring good high paying jobs to our community.
She even VOTED NO to investing more than $250 million in the historically underinvested Southside of Tallahassee.
This isn’t just a vote here or there. It’s a clear and consistent pattern of saying “NO” to protecting our quality of life and improving the things our voters say they want improved.
We’ve addressed our challenges head on and we’re coming back even stronger because we’ve had steady, experienced leadership in the Mayor’s office. This is how we make Tallahassee better today than it was yesterday and better tomorrow than it is today.
