John Dailey claims that Kristin did not support projects vital to Tallahassee communities

Mayor Dailey has claimed that Kristin Dozier did not support projects in the Blueprint bond, such as funding for the Animal Service Center, the Airport Gateway Project, and the Innovation Park Incubator because she voted against the bond at the February 27, 2022 Blueprint IA meeting. This is political spin and a distortion of the facts.


Kristin Dozier supported all of the projects in the Blueprint bond, except for the funding of Doak Campbell Stadium.

Kristin made a motion to separate the funding for Doak Campbell Stadium from the rest of the Blueprint bond, because she fully supported the rest of the proposed projects, but she was blocked by the Mayor and other commissioners who supported a substitute motion.


Kristin made a promise to the community and would have broken her promise if she had supported the substitute motion, which included Doak Campbell Stadium, along with the other worthy projects.


Projects such as the Animal Service Center and the Innovation Park Incubator don’t end up in the Blueprint bond, unless they have been approved by the Blueprint IA board. Kristin supported all of the projects in the bond and even made the motion for two of the projects, the Animal Service Center and the LCRDA Incubator project.


Here is a list of all of the proposed projects in the Blueprint bond that Kristin voted in favor of and the links to the minutes of each meeting.
