Dear OurJax Members:
The aftermath of news from the failed Lot J effort continues to show us that bad things can happen when government policy is made behind closed doors, and without public engagement. The latest evidence is Mark Woods column in the Florida Times-Union on Sunday.
“The idea that to be a viable NFL market you have to build your NFL team an entertainment district right next to its stadium is debunked by… Kansas City, Buffalo, Tampa Bay and Green Bay.”
OurJax wants Jacksonville’s government to undergo a culture change where processes are transparent, truth is foundational, and decisions are trusted to be in the best interest of our citizens.
Thank you for believing in Jacksonville.
Michael J. Ward
