Jason Gabriel reappointed COJ general counsel

Confirming persistent speculation, Jason Gabriel has been picked to continue as the city of Jacksonville’s general counsel, after a public search  by a high-profile search committee led by former mayor John Delaney.

Gabriel has been with the Office of General Counsel for more than five years, and has acted as general counsel since July 1, 2014. Mayor Lenny Curry previously had appointed Jason acting general counsel last month.

“Jason has an enormous scope of responsibility and he has done an amazing job,” Curry said. “He is one of only six attorneys in Jacksonville who is board certified in city, county and local government law by The Florida Bar. The General Counsel Search Committee considered many candidates and Jason was clearly the one attorney who will best serve Jacksonville for years to come.”

Gabriel was the author of the anti-discrimination legislation report ordered by then-Mayor Alvin Brown.
