8/16/2018: Trump & The Media; Urban Development

USA Today

Thursday on First Coast Connect  Melissa read an editorial from Thursday’s Florida Times-Union, which was one of many published by over 300 newspapers across the countrypromoting the freedom of the press and the need to end the war between President Donald Trump and the media. We asked the audience to respond (01:15).  

We discussed the trend of people’s leaving the suburbs and moving back to main cities with urban development consultant and lecturer with the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota Peter Hendee Brown. He is the author of How Real Estate Developers Think. He was joined by Jacksonville Business Journal reporter Dahlia Ghabour, who recently wrote a story on the recent burst of residential and commercial growth in Murray Hill (33:39).
