Caribbean Nationals Celebrate Florida’s
Gillum for Governor
- Jamaica’s Leo Gilling Rallies Support
Leo Gilling, candidate for Miramar Commissioner, hosted a watch party for Candidate Andrew Gillum at Nikki Officer’s Home in the River Run Community of Miramar on election night. The expectation was that the people of South Florida would “bring it home for Andrew Gillum.” About 20 friends, family and fans showed up with much anticipation and excitement, and after the eats and treats, they were glued to their telephone and television sets - expecting a win. All went quiet in the early release of the precincts results.
Gwen Graham, led early in out-takes, but Gillum scratched and clawed his way throughout. Finally, pandemonium broke when the results showed that he had finally surpassed Graham. Mayor Wayne Messam showed up for the watch party and was asked for a response to the announcement of Andrew Gillum’s win. In his address Mayor Messam said that he has been on the campaign trail with Gillum for 18 months - after Gillum showed interest in running for Governor of the state of Florida. He supported him (Gillum) because he supports the issues that are important to the community. He believes that Andrew Gillum could energize the Democratic Party, motivate people to vote and bring real value to the ticket.
The Caribbean-style clanking of pots and pans before and after Messam’s address added even more excitement to the event. Mayor Messam reminded attendees that the work has just begun with this Primary win. He said, “what it will require is that each of us own this campaign; we have to get our families and friends motivated and turn out to vote in the upcoming midterm election on November 6, 2018.
Mayor Andrew Gillum, the son of a bus driver and a construction worker surprised his opponents with a win which could result in him becoming Florida’s first black governor.
