Corrine Delivers for Tallahassee

Dear Friends,

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Tallahassee and would be honored to represent Tally in the U.S. Congress.

Many people know that Tallahassee is my second home because I’m a Rattler -- a proud graduate of FAMU. For many years I served in Tallahassee as a member of the Florida House of Representatives.

During my time in Washington I’ve fought for my Congressional District and the entire state of Florida. That’s why my slogan is “Corrine Delivers”.

A few of the ways I’ve delivered for the Tallahassee area include:

  • ·         Successfully secured support and funding for the VA Clinic and cemetery in Tallahassee.
  • ·         Fought to improve access to healthcare and other services for all veterans, with special attention to women veterans.
  • ·         Secured funding for facility and infrastructure improvements at Tallahassee International Airport.
  • ·         Secured support and funding for the restoration of Gulf Coast passenger rail service, which would include a stop in Tallahassee. (Passenger rail service ended in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina ripped through the Gulf Coast.)
  • ·         Fought to protect Medicare from cuts and expand prescription drug access.
  • ·         Fought to improve PLUS student loan program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).
  • ·         Helped broker a deal to transfer 3,800 acres of land and buildings from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to FAMU. This was the largest land transfer to a HBCU.
I’m very grateful for the warm reception I received when I opened my Tallahassee campaign headquarters at 1617 S. Adams St., across the street from the FAMU campus (of course).

Please drop by and pick up a campaign flyer and a yard sign. I appreciate your support and look forward to working with you in the future.
