The primaries are now well behind us. The parties have unified. Ops for losing candidates have moved into other campaigns (or endeavors).

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Those of a certain age will recall the Semisonic earworm “Closing Time.” It is also where we stand in primary season.

Next week, the new Jacksonville City Council year begins, and we will (likely) see two new additions. The names of Terrance Freeman and Ju’Coby Pittman were leaked Monday to the Jacksonville Daily Record, many hours ahead of the Governor’s official announcement. Someone, for some reason, made the decision to advance the message. Historically the Governor’s […]
