Andrew Gillum, Mayor of Tallahassee and a Democratic candidate for Florida Governor, will be speaking at a Meet and Greet sponsored by the Gulf County Democrats, 7-9 p.m. ET Friday in Building A at the Gulf Coast State College Gulf/Franklin Campus.

The campus is located at 3800 Garrison St. in Port St. Joe.

Gillum will speak about his reasons for running for governor and answer questions from the audience. There will also be an opportunity to meet Andrew and take a photo with him. Refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.

“We are so excited that Mr. Gillum has agreed to visit Gulf County to speak,” said Shannon Stallings, Chair of the Gulf County Democrats. “Andrew is an inspirational speaker and we really wanted him to be able to share his message in person. It is impressive that he is planning to visit all Florida counties, including to speak with Gulf County voters.”

Andrew was born in Miami. He was the first in his family to graduate college and went on to become the youngest person elected to the Tallahassee City Commission, before later becoming Mayor. He lives with his wife R. Jai and their three children in Tallahassee, Florida.
