Media roundtable; JME DJ Sessions
Today’s Media Roundtable discussed some of the top stories in the First Coast, including:
- Once imprisoned and disgraced, former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown is running for Congress again, this time in Central Florida.
- Republican Mat Nemeth has dropped out of the race for Duval County sheriff. This clears the path for the only Republican in the race, TK Waters, to consolidate support.
- The Jacksonville City Council voted 13-6 against proposed legislation from Councilmember-at-large Matt Carlucci. It would have set aside $500,000 to remove Confederate monuments and markers from public land in Jacksonville.
- None of the city’s former living mayors showed up for the 200th birthday bash for Jacksonville.
- After four months of work, a committee studying Jacksonville's troubled garbage collection system listed a number of issues to study further, including higher fees for consumers.
- A groundswell of public opposition caused Jacksonville City Council to hit the pause button on deciding whether it will open up more areas of downtown to new self-storage buildings. About 120 residents and business owners emailed council members and called on them to kill the bill.
- Local attorney and former City Council President Jack Webb.
- The Daily Dot’s Claire Goforth.
- David Bauerlein of the Florida Times-Union.
- WJCT News’ Jamie Jackson.
