Dear OurJax Members,
For the first year of our existence, circumstances dictated that OurJax focus on public officials who acted to avoid transparency, evade public policy, and ignore taxpayers.
But we should never fail to recognize those public servants who operate with Integrity, Transparency, and Accountability, working daily to create a government people will trust.
OurJax believes Carla Miller, director of the city Office of Ethics, Compliance and Oversight is at the top of that list.
For almost 25 years, Ms. Miller, who is retiring October 1, has set the example, and shown the way to have ethical government in Jacksonville. She wrote the original ethics code for Jacksonville’s government. Most recently she raised important ethical and conflict of interest issues regarding the prosed sale of JEA.
Currently, OurJax is working with Ms. Miller to develop an updated and comprehensive legislative package of ethics reform for local government.
We encourage you to read the article below about Ms. Miller which appeared in the Jacksonville Daily Record.
Thank you for believing in Jacksonville!
