ANDREW GILLUM’S FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF: “TALLAHASSEE HAD THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF MURDERS IN HISTORY LAST YEAR”

TALLAHASSEE, FL- Tallahassee’s increased murder rate and crime problem have gotten so bad under Andrew Gillum that even his own former chief of staff is campaigning against Gillum’s failure to support law enforcement and prevent violent crime.

Dustin Daniels, Gillum’s former chief of staff and a Tallahassee mayoral candidate, says in a new direct mail piece that Tallahassee “must do better” and admits “Tallahassee had the highest number of murders in history last year and we top the state for the highest crime rate.”

“Even Andrew Gillum’s former chief of staff is admitting his boss’s failure to keep people safe,” said Meredith Beatrice, Communications Director for the RPOF. “Under Andrew Gillum’s watch, Tallahassee’s average murder rate increased 52 percent and he repeatedly denied law enforcement requests for additional officers prior to 2017. Just this weekend, families in the Tallahassee neighborhood of Killearn endured a terrifying ordeal involving multiple vehicle burglaries and gunfire between residents and suspects. How can Gillum expect to keep Florida safe when he has allowed Tallahassee to become one of the most crime-ridden cities in Florida?”
