"Mayor Hanrahan has welcomed me to her city on my two recent visits to Gainesville. This community is fortunate to be led by one of the best - a mayor who is leading today by creating a green infrastructure for Gainesville's future. Pegeen is a forward thinker and under her leadership, Gainesville will be a model city for energy innovation and conservation,” said Congressman Kendrick Meek. “I look forward to spending many days on the campaign trail with the number one Gator fan in Gainesville."
“Congressman Kendrick Meek is passionate about people and that is the essence of public service. He is a leader in Congress who sits on the powerful Ways and Means Committee and issues that affect Gainesville, from climate change to the creation of an economy producing green collar jobs, are subjects Kendrick tackles on a daily basis,” said Mayor Hanrahan. “He has visited Gainesville twice already indicating to me that Kendrick will be a statewide candidate who will compete in every city and county no matter its size or geographic location. I strongly endorse Kendrick Meek for U.S. Senate and look forward to campaigning with him in Gainesville and throughout Gator Country.”
Last week, Congressman Meek was endorsed by Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter, West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel and Tallahassee Mayor John Marks.
