The time has come for Florida

By Victoria Selmore

We’ve observed the political landscape become increasingly divisive in America since the 2016 presidential election, and as we head to the polls on Nov. 6 to elect a new governor and other pertinent elected officials, (mid-term) the African American community must galvanize like never and elect Andrew Gillum as the next governor.

While some of his staunchest critics have tried to depict him as a flaming liberal and anti-Israel, Gallium’s platform includes:  sensible gun control measures,  Medicare for all, with the expansion of Medicaid; additional funding for education— with an increase in teacher’s salaries across the board as a priority; has pledged to promote other energy sources; and will lobby for the minimum wage to be increased to $15 per hour.

Gillum’s chance of pushing these issues through would appear to be an impossible task with a Republican-controlled legislature, but let’s not forget sometimes the will can be strong, and the fight can be won.  The time has come for Florida to move forward
