The Tributary

Today’s Media Roundtable discussed some of the top stories in the First Coast, including:

  • Republican Nick Howland beat Democrat Tracye Polson on Tuesday in the city’s special election to fill the seat left vacant by the late Tommy Hazouri. The flip of this Jacksonville seat from D to R is being seen by some national pundits as a bellwether for America's midterm elections this November.
  •  Today, the Republican National Committee opens its Black American Community Center in Jacksonville with GOP Chairman Ronna McDaniel. The center is part of the RNC’s multimillion-dollar investment in expanding Black voters nationwide.
  • Redistricting battles continue as proposed maps pass through Tallahassee. The ongoing process of drawing new Congressional lines was met with a new proposal, just before a new map was published.
  • Curbside recycling resumes in April while City Council continues to investigate the city’s trash collection issues.
  • Earlier this week, a full federal appeals court heard arguments in a lawsuit over whether a St. Johns County high school should have prevented a transgender male student from using the boys’ bathroom. The case has garnered national attention.
