Andrew Gillum’s Response To “Let’s Not Monkey That Up”
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
There has been much discussion about the remark “….let’s not monkey that up,” toward Democratic nominee for Florida governorship Andrew Gillum by Republican nominee Ron DeSantis. Tallahassee Mayor and Democratic nominee for Florida Governor Andrew Gillum joins MTP Daily, responding to this remark in the video below:
In responding to the question, “What would you do to promote cleaner energy sources like solar and wind?”, Andrew Gillum said (in italics, below):
Florida is the Sunshine State — we should be the world leader in creating jobs and opportunity through solar energy production. Instead, we rank behind places like New Jersey and Germany. As Governor, I’ll prioritize the development of clean, renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and biomass — creating a business climate for good, clean energy jobs that can’t be outsourced. I’ll establish a renewable portfolio standard, re-initiate the solar rebate program so popular under Governor Crist, and put scientists in charge of our state’s energy and climate policies. In Tallahassee I’ve led on this issue — the same week that Donald Trump was pulling us out of the Paris Climate Accord, I was breaking ground on a new 120-acre solar farm.
Andrew Gillum believes that the best way to address the impacts of climate change is to embrace a plan to transition Florida to clean energy as rapidly as possible. Achieving this goal will put us on a path to a completely clean energy economy, creating thousands of new jobs in Florida, and cleaner air and healthier families.
