Democrats! Let's stand behind our fellow Democrats and support them!!!
The mayor is demanding the resignation of two great people from the planning commission to make room for his friends. Lisa King and Joey McKinnon are very well qualified. If they choose not to resign and wish to serve, the council does not have to approve replacements, unless they want to support the Mayor's nominations for replacement which include the son of a tow truck company owner and a banker. Are they as qualified as Lisa and Joey? See link below for qualifications and expertise on all things planning, zoning, environmental issues, land use, etc. And if the Mayor's nominations are not qualified to make important development decisions for our beautiful community of Jacksonville... then, why is he demanding that Lisa and Joey be replaced? THIS IS NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE. I would support Lisa and Joey if they were Republicans.
If you feel the same, let's speak at the public comment section of the City Council meeting on Oct 13th.
We will get together once near to the date to discuss talking points, message, and order of comments... and address any other issues before going up before City Council. The max time to speak is 3 minutes but let's go up as a group and speak for around 30 seconds showing our support for Lisa and Joey. I'll provide talking points and tips. This is OUR city, OUR Jacksonville... let's make sure our voices get heard and decisions that are in the best interest of Jacksonville are made.
