  1. Congratulations David! Thank you for stepping up to the plate, and the sacrifices this honorable endeavor will require.

  2. I dont like punishing employers for the failures of the federal govt to stop illegals. How about PAYING employers to do the govts job instead of punishing them for it doing it for them?

  3. Is TR the official PR hack for Mayor DAILEY?

    Tallahassee where everyone looks the other way at elected officials’ corruption. Not only do they look the other way they promote them. There are a lot of co-conspirators, The Usual Suspects, WCTV, the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, the state attorney, Republican Party of Florida co-chair Evan Power and the rest of you know who you are. The bundled contributions contributors and recipients feeds the grift. We get wasted tax dollars, dangerous projects, environmental destruction, high crime rate, misuse of nonprofits, misogyny, etc…

    Where have we heard that before?

    NE Moderate,
    We need to send a thank you letter to former Leon County Republican Executive Committee Chair, Evan Power, for his successful campaign of getting John Dailey elected. He has an abysmal record for getting Republicans elected, but he sure has a great record of getting Democrats elected.

  4. Dailey q: Any comments on the Velda Dairy re-alignment and “earthwork” the city is doing there?

  5. I would like to announce that as of 4:15 Yesterday (Monday, May 1, 2023) I registered to run for Leon County Commissioner, At Large, Group 1.

    The biggest issue I want to work on is still the Crime Rate. It is past time that we redirect the Funds from all the failing Programs and build a new bigger Jail and start locking up the Criminals and get ready for what is coming.

  6. Dailey questions: Is it true you’d like to run for governor? Do you think the CSC tax increase is working well? Why did your comms director post a photo on social media with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Miami Beach?
