OurJax letter to Councilmembers regarding Lot J, T-U story 11.11.20

Downtown Jacksonville

Dear OurJax Members,

OurJax continues its effort to convince members of the City Council to take a reasonable and unrushed expert review of the proposed Lot J deal between the City and the Jaguars. On Monday afternoon, OurJax sent individual letters to all council members urging them to remove Lot J from the fast track it is currently on and restructure the proposal to be in the best interest of taxpayers.

Below is the OurJax letter, along with a poll analysis that reports 70 percent of voters are currently opposed to the Lot J proposal.

This morning’s Florida Times-Union has this article by Christopher Hong, “Watchdog group urges City Council to not rush Lot J deal.”

We encourage you to share this information with your family and friends and ask them to join you in letting council members know that you agree with OurJax.
