Earlier this summer, we reported on a whistleblower lawsuit brought against the non-profit company of Jacksonville City Councilman Reggie Gaffney. Former employee Darlene Peoples claimed the company, Community Rehabilitation Center, had “unlawfully terminated” her… after she was allegedly exposed to risk from HIV-positive clients without proper training and licensure. Peoples asserted that she couldn’t find any recourse via human […]

Some big endorsements have fallen in for Dick Kravitz in House District 16 and for Clay Yarborough in HD 12. Kravitz was endorsed by former Jacksonville City Councilman Jack Webb and the man who beat him in a spirited battle in 2011, Matt Schellenberg. Both men bemoaned the tactics used against Kravitz. “Dick Kravitz is a proven leader who has demonstrated […]

Though two former Jacksonville City Council presidents, Bill Bishop and Stephen Joost, went to the press in opposition to County Referendum 1, which would authorize the extension of the half-cent sales tax through 2060 to deal with the $2.8 billion unfunded actuarial liability on public pensions, five more came out in support of the measure Thursday.

One of the more interesting results of the 2011 Jacksonville City Council elections: Matt Schellenberg beating Jack Webb. Schellenberg, in his second term, is pushing legislation for a referendum to extend consecutive terms for Council members, constitutional officers, and the mayor to three terms. This would, as the bill now stands, allow Schellenberg to stand for re-election. […]

In a statement on Wednesday evening, the Jacksonville Coalition for Equality said it was “dismayed” by Bill Gulliford‘s proposed referendum on the HRO (Human Rights Ordinance) expansion. Using rhetoric similar to that employed by former GOP Councilman Jack Webb at Tuesday’s Community Conversation, the JCE wrote that “we can strike a balance between protecting gay and transgender […]

The big question going into the final Jacksonville HRO Community Conversation, about the effect of potential legislation on businesses, held at Jacksonville University on Tuesday evening, wasn’t about the proponents of a Human Rights Ordinance expansion to the LGBT community; rather, about the opponents. Longwood Florida’s own Roger Gannam, apparently the Swiss Army knife of […]

FloridaPolitics.com has obtained a list of panelists for the third Community Conversation on the Jax Human Rights Ordinance expansion. One of the names is familiar: Roger Gannam, of the Liberty Counsel, who has been a often lonely voice on the first two panels opposing HRO expansion. Though Gannam’s inclusion on a third consecutive panel will no […]

Duval County Republican political consultant Raymond Johnson has been turning heads with recent activities, such as his planning of a “history of the Confederate flag”-themed meeting of the Westside Republican Club on Monday, which was intended to capitalize on the publicity surrounding the “Muslim-free” gun shop in Inverness. Additionally, Johnson has made news via his attempted fatwa […]

The first thing you would have seen walking into the Salem Center for the Monday Duval County Republican Executive Committee meeting would have been Raymond Johnson. You couldn’t have missed him. He stood directly across from the glass doors, with a poster board and a petition opposing Jack Webb, a candidate for GOP chair,. Objecting […]
