Nate Monroe: Auditor Review Pokes Holes in Lot J Deal

Jacksonville City

The anticipated report by the City Council auditor regarding the proposed Lot J development deal with the Jaguars has been issued.

As reported by Florida Times-Union columnist Nate Monroe today in “Auditor Review Pokes Holes in Lot J Deal,” the proposal is full of unanswered and troubling questions. It substantiates OurJax’s urging of the City Council to conduct a thorough review of the deal.

As we have asked, why the rush?

Please contact members of your City Council and urge them to slow down and do the right thing for taxpayers. You can find their contact information here.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Ward
President
