Jacksonville Bold for 07.19.16 — Getting to 'Yes' - Florida Politics (blog)
The second budget presentation from Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, offered Monday morning, fulfilled some rhetorical needs. Curry, who advanced an $83. 3 million capital improvement plan, was able to point with pride to significant allocations toward perpetually neglected parts of town. Among the spending are large allocations for drainage projects: $6 million for countywide drainage rehab, $6. 8 million for the Lower Eastside Drainage Project, and $2. 1 million for the Trout River/Moncrief drainage projects. During the press event with Curry after the presentation to Council, Curry was able to look at the front row and see pastor John Allen Newman, pastor John Guns, former Sheriff Nat Glover, and pastor Garry Williams. Williams, speaking for the quartet, noted that he didn’t vote for theMmayor, but he was voting ‘Yes’ Aug. Curry is going to need to shore up support among African-American Democrats to counteract potential attrition from tax-averse Republicans. Curry, who campaigned on public safety, was somehow able to get 40 more cops and 40 more community service officers … an allocation with an impact of $4. 3 million for six months. And he was able to earmark a provisional $3. 5 million for pension costs … that is, if the pension tax referendum does not pass Aug. And especially for the parts of the press that aren’t necessarily at every (or any) committee meeting, that was the intended take-away: pass the pension referendum. Action News Jax got it: “unfunded pension costs are ‘eating our budget alive’, says mayor” was that outfit’s headline. WOKV got it too: their report used “pension costs are ‘eating our budget alive’” in the sub-header. News 4 Jax didn’t devote a headline to the pension costs, but did push the pension referendum in the story. And that’s where most people in Jacksonville get their news and their framework for their stories. Those stories of the “fiscal cliff” have, already, “Yes for Jacksonville” ads during the breaks. A $150,000 ad buy was in the latest finance report for the political committee, invoice date July 7. What’s showing up so far. An ad with Curry, in sunny disposition mode, talking about the tax extension being a solution to the problem created by the pension costs. The same team selling “Yes for Jacksonville” — Tim Baker and Brian Hughes — are the ones who helped lift Curry from an afterthought in the mayoral field to a mayor who has strong favorables throughout the community. Curry, as she speaks in relatable tones about how a tax extension is a key to ensuring that kids like hers — and yours — can enjoy Jacksonville as it has been. “ Here are the three words Curry dare not utter regarding the new sales tax vote – ‘new sales tax’ ” via Ron Littlepage of the Florida Times-Union – By law, the Better Jacksonville sales tax ends in 2030. Kaput. If Curry ’s plan is approved by the voters, a new sales tax would go into effect in 2031. I know Curry doesn’t want the term “new tax” to ever pass through his lips, but that’s what it is. That doesn’t mean people should vote against it, but let’s...floridapolitics.com
