Commissioner District 4

Commissioner Andy Gay

andy-gayCommissioner Gay was re-elected as District 4 Commissioner on April 27, 2010 and was sworn-in on April 30, 2010. Mr. Gay was elected Mayor by his fellow Commissioners in May 2008, and re-elected in May of 2009. He previously served as Mayor-Pro Tem for two years. He, with the support of his commissioners, has made a fiscally sound and accountable city government the hallmark of his two–year term as mayor.

Assuming the leadership role of the City, Gay and the Commission have turned a city with a structural financial deficit and pessimistic outlook for its future into a true renaissance. Quincy has experienced a bona fide renewal of its historic downtown and the continued improvement of the quality of life for all of the city residents.

While Commissioner Gay was Mayor – the Commission successfully established collaborative partnerships with County Government, the business communities, Chamber of Commerce, and Gadsden County’s sister cities. These partnerships will help ensure strong economic development and growth for the future.

Commissioner Gay was elected to the Quincy City Commission in April 2005 and has served two terms. Commissioner Gay serves on the Tourist Development Council, Gadsden Learns Board, Florida State University Alumni Association, and Tallahassee Community College Alumni Association.

Gerald Andrew Gay III (Andy) was born in Quincy, Florida, and was raised in the Holiday Heights neighborhood. He is a 3rd generation Quincy resident and a 6th generation Floridian. Gay is a graduate of Florida State University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Movement Science. Gay recently earned his Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning with a Specialization in Leadership from National University in La Jolla, California.
