Transparency, Integrity and Accountability




On Monday morning, September 28, the City Council Special Investigative Committee (SIC) looking into what happened during the failed attempt to sell JEA will be asked by special counsel Steve Busey if the committee wants to subpoena political operative Tim Baker.

Busey interviewed Baker under oath on September 8 and Baker refused to turn over documents and information requested for the committee. In doing so, Baker cited unspecified privileges and constitutional rights. He also declined to answer material questions about his relationship with Florida Power & Light (FP&L), polling he performed regarding JEA privatization, and whether FP&L promised him a success fee.

Busey is going to ask the four committee members on Monday the 28th if they want to challenge Baker’s assertion by asking the Rules Committee to request a subpoena.

OurJax encourages you to reach out to the members of the SIC and encourage them to seek Baker’s documents for transparency, accountability, and the integrity of the investigation.
