Calibe Thompson, publisher of Island Origins Magazine had a chance to sit and have a robust conversation with Democratic Florida gubernatorial nominee (candidate at the time), Andrew Gillum, to see what kind of message he had for the Caribbean Americans in South Florida. In their conversation, he talked about his personal relationship with the Caribbean community, his perspectives on immigration, his approach to business and wages, and his personal love of jerk chicken.
