Caucus Announces Endorsed and Supported Candidates for Primary Election

On the eve of the start of early voting in Florida’s primary elections, the Capital City GLBTA Democratic Caucus, a chartered chapter of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus, announced that they have endorsed Nancy Miller, candidate for re-election to Tallahassee City Commission, Seat 3, and Verna Brock, candidate for Wakulla County School Board, District 1.

“Commissioner Miller’s strong leadership abilities and passion for Tallahassee are evidenced by the economic growth and successful revitalization of our city’s downtown area, which she has fully supported since her election in 2010,” said Caucus President Andy Janecek. “Our members look to elect candidates who stand firmly in support of equality and justice for all people. Commissioner Miller and Verna Brock personify those values.”

While the Capital City GLBTA Democratic Caucus does not endorse in primary races that involve more than one Democratic candidate, the organization has issued statements of support for Mayor of Tallahassee candidate Andrew Gillum and Tallahassee City Commission, Seat 2 candidate Curtis Richardson.

“There’s no doubt that we have great Democrats running in these races, but Commissioner Gillum has consistently supported issues that are important to our community, such as offering domestic partner benefits to City employees in 2009,” added Caucus Campaign & Communications Chair Josh Willoughby. “Commissioner Gillum and Former Representative Curtis Richardson understand that the concepts of inclusion and diversity are vital to ensuring Tallahassee’s future growth.”

The mission of the Capital City GLBTA Democratic Caucus is to foster good will between gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and ally (GLBTA) members of the Democratic Party and the community at large. The organization seeks individual freedom in the framework of a just society and political freedom in the framework of meaningful participation by all citizens.
