The news briefs from the December 13, 2023 Tallahassee City Commission meeting are now available.

The Tallahassee City Commission nominated and approved an appointee for the Citizens Review Police Board who works as a political advisor for an organization that has called for the abolishment of police, prisons and punishment. Malik Ready was appointed without a vote by the board after being nominated by Commissioner Jeremy Matlow Wednesday.

Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey and other members of the city commission expressed interest in limiting the non-agenda speaking period of the commission meetings, following activist speakers getting “out of control.” “The level of decorum with unagenda’d speakers and quite frankly, with some of the agendaed speakers, is getting a little out of control,” Dailey said. “Especially the personal threats and attacks on family.”


FSU men’s basketball plays host to the SMU Mustangs Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. It is the first in seven consecutive home games. The Noles are 4-4 looking to move back to a winning record.

Florida State head coach Mike Norvell was named a finalist for the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award and the organization’s ACC Coach of the Year. It is Norvell’s second appearance as a finalist for coach of the year after he first led his previous school – the Memphis Tigers – to a 12-1 record in 2019 and an American Conference Championship.


Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed increasing funding in the upcoming 2024-2025 “Focus on Florida’s Future” budget by $10 million for “facility hardening” at Florida’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities, or HBCUs. A press release stated that $152 million will go to the state’s four HBCUs, including $10 million for “facility hardening to prevent anyone from targeting HBCUs with violence.”

A federal judge Wednesday began a trial in a constitutional challenge to Florida restrictions on such things as puberty blockers and hormone therapy for transgender people.

  1. The meeting was abruptly ended by Dailey because, in his opinion, the comments from the public speakers did not fit his self-proclaimed “decorum standard.”

    That’s like the little kid taking his football and going home because he was loosing the game.

    Mr. Mayor, “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

    This whole meeting was a “circus.” Shame on Tallahassee!

  2. Dailey and everyone else on the commission were perfectly fine with BLM’s lack of decorum and the systematic debasing of civil society. They applauded it and called it long overdue.

    Mayor Dailey made his bed, now he doesn’t want to sleep in it. Its Ok to be ugly to people he doesn’t like, but if you are ugly to him it has to stop…hahaha Too funny.
