Orthopedic surgeon to challenge for Florida city commissioner seat


Orthopedic surgeon David Bellamy, MD, is challenging incumbent Tallahassee, Fla., City Commissioner Jeremy Matlow in the 2022 election, Florida Politics reported Oct. 6.

Dr. Bellamy is a surgeon at Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic and a part-time medic with the Tallahassee Police Department. He told Florida Politics his experience with the police has familiarized him with community issues.

"I understand a lot of the history of Tallahassee, the good and the bad," Dr. Bellamy told the publication. "I think my skills at coming to a consensus and trying to build compromises and build groups together is very good."

Mr. Matlow has held the position since 2018. Dr. Bellamy is the first candidate to challenge him.
