New District 10 Councilman Will Hold His First Community Meeting Thursday

Jul 17, 2018

Jacksonville’s new District 10 City Councilman Terrance Freeman plans to hold his first community meet-and-greet this week.

Freeman said in a news release the purpose is to introduce himself to his Northside constituents and to learn about their top concerns.

The community meeting is scheduled from 6:30 to 7:30 Thursday night at the Legends Center on Soutel Drive.

Freeman is a Republican.

He was appointed by Governor Rick Scott last week to replace Democrat Reggie Brown who’s been indicted on federal fraud charges.

Brenda Priestly Jackson, a northside resident is challenging that appointment in court since Freeman did not live in the district at the time his appointment was announced. 

At the time he was still a resident of Mandarin in District 6. He now rents two rooms in a District 10 home.
