    I have been following “The Florida Squeeze” since 2016 and enjoy your political and Florida history posts.

    Thank you so much for covering the 2022 Tallahassee City Commission elections.

    Please consider endorsing other local city commission candidate as well as some excellent candidates running for Leon County Commission (see the attached “No 2 DOAK” slate endorsements). Candidates on this slate are registered Democrats with the exception of Damon Victor, candidate for Leon County Commissioner in District 3.

    I happen to live in Leon County District 3 where I am supporting Damon Victor, the NPA candidate. Note that there is another District 3 candidate, Joey Lamar, who I and others think is good. Victor and Lamar are running against career politician Rick Minor, a first-term county commissioner who was hired by Scott Maddox when he was Leon County party chair to run the John Kerry for President local campaign (a disaster), who later served as chair of the Leon County Democratic Party (don’t know the time period) and went on to serve as Tallahassee Mayor John Marks’ aide. After a stint as director of Second Harvest and various attempts at running for state and local office, he finally ran to replace John Dailey as Leon County District 3 commissioner in 2018 and unfortunately won. (Note: he dropped out of a local commission race at the request of Scott Maddox – it’s documented on the Leon County Supervisor of election website.) Minor needs to be replaced. Having observed his voting record since 2018, I have seen him consistently support development projects that have not benefitted the voters of Leon County. He changed his vote on Doak Campbell Stadium on the third Blueprint vote and takes credit for his late vote on this unpopular Blueprint decision in hopes of getting re-elected. Victor has publicly opposed Doak since the first vote on Doak in May 2021 and decided to run against Minor shortly thereafter.

    Electing the “NO 2 DOAK” slate candidates can stop the corruption in our county. Please help us!
