“Now more than ever, Fort Myers needs a leader like Jacquelyn. From ensuring
equitable access to clean water, to leading on issues of racial equity and community-driven police reform, she will be a tireless leader on the right side of the issues. I’m proud to endorse her run for Mayor and look forward to seeing her transform Fort Myers for its residents.” – Chris King
“I am honored to have Chris King’s endorsement,” McMiller said. “Chris cares deeply about the future of Floridians and has spent his career focusing on issues of housing access and equity, issues that are central right here in our city. I look forward to working with leaders like Chris to take Fort Myers in a new direction.”
Chris King’s endorsement of McMiller follows endorsements from Rep. Jones, Rep. Dianne
Hart, the Democratic Party of Lee County, Progressive Club of the Islands, Peaceful Protest Lee County, Bring it Home SWFL, Young Democrats of Lee County and the Lee County Democratic LGBTQA Caucus.
Jacquelyn McMiller announced her candidacy for Mayor of Fort Myers in response to the failure in leadership from the Mayor and her opponents to address issues such as criminal activity and corruption in the city’s police department; along with the habit of prioritizing outside interests over the citizens of Fort Myers. The citizens of Fort Myers will cast their vote for Mayor in Florida’s August 18th Primary. Florida voters will have the option to vote-by-mail and vote early— in addition to voting in person on August 18th.
