This week I was honored to make the Democratic case at the Capital Tiger Bay Club vs. the Leon County GOP chair at a public debate ahead of 2024 elections — where local Democrats look to make significant gains and defend against Republican incursions into our local government.

On issue after issue, I made a strong Democratic argument for why:

  • Floridians must act to protect abortion rights against Republican attacks,

  • Tallahassee will fight back against extreme experiments in privatizing our public schools like Ron DeSantis-recruited State Sen. Corey Simon's (who's up for election in 2024!) SB 202,

  • North Florida's Black Congressional district, previously represented by U.S. Rep. Al Lawson, must be restored by the Legislature, and

  • "Moms For Liberty"-aligned School Board policies are wrong for Leon County — and why Democrats must protect public education from their Far Right influence.

With pay-for-play media outlets like "Tallahassee Reports" and other right wing fake news sites on the rise, it's more important than ever to get our message out clearly and consistently.

As your local Democratic Party's elected Chair, I'll make sure our party is doing that week in and week out.

If you agree with electing Democrats up and down the ballot in Tallahassee — join us! Become a DEC member by emailing or make a donation to the Leon County Democratic Party today!

Thank you!
