Rudolph “Rudy” Ferguson Sr., a passionate and faithful member of our community, announces his candidacy for the Tallahassee City Commission, Seat 1. With a strong commitment to our neighborhoods and a vision for a better Tallahassee, Rudy Ferguson aims to bring positive change, effective leadership and consensus building to the city commission as Tallahassee faces serious challenges.
As a lifelong resident of Griffin Heights, one of the city’s lowest-income neighborhoods, Rudy understands day-to-day challenges and observes the effectiveness of public policy.
“Top-to-bottom policy does not work. You must be on the ground, listening and seeing the issues firsthand. Only then, you can produce effective solutions.” – Rudy Ferguson.
One of the primary goals of Rudy's campaign is to foster an inclusive, prosperous, and equitable city. Rudy believes that every individual, regardless of their background or circumstances, should have equal access to opportunities and resources. By advocating for policies that promote fairness, Rudy intends to create a more harmonious and united Tallahassee.
Rudy also recognizes the importance of economic growth and sustainability for the city. Once elected, Rudy is committed to working with local businesses, entrepreneurs, and community organizations to develop policies that retain talent, attract investments, and ensure the long-term prosperity of Tallahassee. By prioritizing smart urban planning, affordable housing, and environmental stewardship, Rudy aims to build a city that is both economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable.
“Lately, we have seen a lot of fighting, finger pointing and division in the City Commission. It is hurting us. Tallahassee needs a commissioner who will bring everyone to the table and find a middle ground.” – Rudy Ferguson
Public safety is one of the key areas of focus for Rudy. Presently at the age of 51, he stands as a locally acclaimed figure in the field of crime prevention and addressing the needs of young people. Some of his recognitions include being appointed, by the late Governor Lawton Chiles, to the Board of Directors for the Martin Luther King Jr. Institute for Nonviolence. Ferguson was also awarded the “Citizen of the Year” award from former Florida Attorney General Robert Butterworth, and he was most recently recognized as Honorary Deputy Sheriff by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Rudy has been, and will continue to work closely with law enforcement agencies, community leaders, and residents to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents.
“We have heard enough. It is time to act. Tallahassee residents and businesses need solutions, and they need them now.” – Rudy Ferguson

By supporting Rudy's campaign, citizens will be endorsing a candidate who is committed to transparency, accountability, and responsive governance. Together, Rudy wants to shape a Tallahassee that we can all be proud of.
