Today I have filed the same Human Rights Ordinance that was voted on by the Jacksonville City Council in 2012 with one addition – a provision for a referendum by the voters on the issue. As a courtesy, I waited until after Mayor Curry’s final community conversation event on this topic before acting.

Today Jacksonville City Council Member Aaron Bowman, (District 3) announced his support for Governor Rick Scott’s proposed reforms for Enterprise Florida, including the creation of the Florida Enterprise Fund.

Council Member Bowman said “Job creation is extremely important for the State of Florida and I fully support the proposal to create the Florida Enterprise Fund and improve the economic development process at Enterprise Florida. Enterprise Florida has been integral to creating jobs in our community, with companies such as Vistakon, Macquarie, Anheuser Busch, Fidelity, Deutsche Bank, General Electric, and Safariland. These reforms will continue to diversify our local economy, empower our small businesses, and create even more great jobs.”
