Councilwoman Priestly Jackson Introduces Bill Aimed At Stopping JEA Sale

Councilwoman Brenda Priestly Jackson has filed a bill (2019-894) calling on JEA’s board to put a halt to the ITN and sale of the utility. Priestly Jackson said the JEA board blindsided City Council members and the public when the board voted July 23 to put the utility up for sale by seeking offers from outside entities.

If approved by the City Council, the resolution would request the JEA board to vote at its next meeting to end the ‚Äúinvitation to negotiate‚ÄĚ process that began in August.¬†Council Member(s) Dennis (D), Carlucci (R), and DeFoor (R) have signed on as co-sponsors of the bill.¬†

Duval Dems commend Jackson for speaking truth to power and support¬†her introduction on this bill.¬†ūüĎŹūüĎŹūüĎŹ¬†

Priestly Jackson bill will be voted on at the January 14th City Council meeting. We need 10-votes for the bill’s passage – so we need your help to make that happen!
