MORE REASONS YOU CAN NOT INCLUDE 'JACKSONVILLE' AND 'PROGRESSIVE' IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
City Councilman Matt Carlucci introduced a bill to budget $500,000 to have the mayor propose a plan to remove the confederate monument in Springfield Park and the rest of the Confederate Statue remaining in James Weldon Johnson Park.
The Jacksonville City Council voted the legislation down, 6 councilmen voted for the legislation that would have removed the confederate statues; 13 councilmen voted against the legislation to keep the confederate statues.
THE 6 WHO VOTED FOR REMOVING THE CONFEDERATE STATUES:
Matt Carlucci, Garrett Dennis, Reggis Gaffney, Joyce Morgan, Ju'Coby Pittman, and Brenda Priestly Jackson.
THE 13 WHO VOTED AGAINST REMOVING THE CONFEDERATE STATUES:
Danny Becton, Aaron Bowman, Michael Boylan, LaAnna Cumber, Randy DeFoor. Rory Diamond, Al Ferraro, Terrance Freeman, Sam Newby, Ron Salem, Randy White, Kevin Carrico, and Nick Howland.
It is instructive that ALL who voted against removing the confederate statues were Republicants, including the two Black Republicants-Sam Newby and Terrance Freeman.
YOU CANNOT INCLUDE 'JACKSONVILLE' AND 'PROGRESSIVE' IN THE SAME SENTENCE. IT WILL NOT WORK. YOU CAN'T DO IT.
