Jacksonville City Council President-designate Aaron Bowman released committee assignments for the year starting July 1.
Committees will look different than they did during the Anna Brosche presidency.
The Finance Committee, which will be charged with an August review of the budget, will be guided by a steady hand: former Council President and banking executive by trade Greg Anderson.
The vice-chair will be one of the Council’s leading Democrats, Joyce Morgan, who will have a visible and important role as she faces a new challenge on the 2019 ballot from former councilman Bill Bishop.
Rounding out the panel: former Council Presidents Bill Gulliford and Lori N. Boyer, along with Reginald Gaffney, Jim Love, and Sam Newby.
Rules, meanwhile, will see a Democrat — former Mayor Tommy Hazouri — chairing that panel. Gulliford, marginalized in the Brosche era as Hazouri was, will get vice chair.
Rounding out the body: Anderson, Boyer, John Crescimbeni, Matt Schellenberg, and one of the appointed replacements for indicted Councilors Reggie Brown and Katrina Brown.
Land Use and Zoning sees Schellenberg get the chair, Danny Becton getting vice-chair, and Brosche, Doyle Carter, Al Ferraro, Gaffney and a replacement councilor round out the panel.
Moving on to the lesser committees, Sam Newby gets to chair Neighborhoods, Community Services, Public Health and Safety; Carter is vice chair.
As a measure of current Finance Chair Garrett Dennis‘ fading star, this is his sole committee placement. Hazouri, VP-Designate Scott Wilson, Morgan, and a replacement councilor fill out the slate.
Finally, Ferraro will chair Transportation, Energy, and Utilities. Love gets vice-chair. Becton, Brosche, Crescimbeni, Wilson, and a replacement fill out that roll call.
