JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Councilman Garrett Dennis has introduced two bills for voter referendum, to be added to the ballot during the upcoming Special Election to be held February 22, 2022. “It is my goal to give the opportunity to help eliminate government waste by cutting the size of government and save taxpayers millions of dollars.” Dennis said.

(EEE) Eliminating Excess Elections- Designed to align the Spring Election with the Gubernatorial Election, this will save the taxpayers approximately $4 million.

(GRB) Government Reduction Bill- Reducing the size of the City Council from 19 members to 14 members to represent each district (eliminates 5 At-Large council seats). This minimization of the size government will save taxpayers approximately $885,000 annually.

In a career as an elected leader that spanned four decades, the former mayor helped the city shed its label as “The armpit of the South."

Greetings, everyone.  I pray this missive reaches each of you doing well. 

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the late former Jacksonville City Council President, and Council Member, the incomparable, Mr. Tommy Hazouri. I extend my prayers and condolences to his family and loved ones.
 
Council Member Hazouri’s sharp wit, wisdom and humor will be sorely missed. I pray for  us all who knew and loved him.

It is with profound sadness that the Hazouri family announces the passing of our devoted husband and loving father, Tommy Hazouri, on Saturday, September 11, 2021.  

A son of Jacksonville, Tommy spent a lifetime helping his neighbors build a better community. Those who knew him understood he could not have had it any other way.  

He spent his final days at peace surrounded by his family and friends; and in typical Tommy fashion, there was no shortage of laughing, reminiscing, and holding loved ones close. He is survived by his wife Carol and son Tommy Jr. 

Tommy lived his life with a certain mantra in mind. In times of intense fury, overwhelming sorrow, or unpredictable turmoil, he always insisted people put differences aside and come together. This optimism was especially important to him in recent years. 

As we grieve Tommy’s passing with the Jacksonville community, we ask that you honor his memory by doing something good today for someone with whom you may have had a quarrel or a disagreement. There are infinite opportunities to help each other in our daily lives, but only a finite number of days to do it. 

We will miss Tommy dearly, but we know his legacy will live on through the people — and the city — he loved so much.
