STATEMENT: Gillum Pledges to Keep Florida and Tallahassee in Paris Climate Accord

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today:

“President Trump’s disturbingly reckless decision to withdraw us from the Paris Climate Accord is a monumental setback for Florida – the epicenter of climate change in the United States. When I am Governor, I will join California, New York and Washington in their state-based climate alliance to uphold and implement the Paris Climate Accord. As Mayor of Tallahassee, I will work with our City Commission to implement climate change and clean energy measures in our city, including investing in our new solar farm. The Sunshine State has had enough of climate deniers endangering our state and our way of life.”
