Media Roundtable: Gov. Scott Wins Re-Election
The results of election 2014 and Jacksonville's pension are making headlines this week.
Governor Rick Scott narrowly won re-election Tuesday, defeating former governor Charlie Crist in one of the nastiest and most expensive races in the country.
Amendment One, which dealt with water and land conservation, saw a victory this week as well. A majority of Florida voters said yes to Amendment Two, the medical marijuana amendment, but it failed to hit the 60 percent mark needed to pass. Amendment Three, looking to reform state judicial appointments, also did not pass.
Joining us on our regular Friday roundtable to discuss the outcome of the election and other stories from the week was our panel of local journalists:
- John Burr, Jacksonville Business Journal editor
- Larry Hannan, Florida Times-Union reporter
- Eric Smith, People and Politics host
- Jeff Billman, Folio Weekly editor
Additional topics include a bill introduced by three City Council members this week to end the city's existing agreement with the Police and Fire Pension Fund, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. moving its headquarters to downtown Jacksonville, and Jaguars owner Shad Khan making a splash in London.
