Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

More “local companies first”

Councilman Daniel Davis’ “local companies first” preference legislation is riding a rocky road, with the Chamber of Commerce objecting to it and requesting that a task force be appointed.  Interestingly enough, Councilman Art Graham thinks it’s such a great idea that he is sponsoring a resolution to encourage Jacksonville’s independent agencies to also adopt a “local companies first” policy. Councilman Graham’s bill, 2009-39, will be introduced at City Council this Tuesday night.

    Let’s not forget that Mr. Graham is running for the Florida Senate. His opponent, Aaron Bean, has raised thousands upon thousands from outside companies and lobbyists, so its no surprise that Mr. Graham would see the local value in sponsoring this type of legislation. It looks great for raising campaign funds. May not be the best deal for the taxpayers, but it can raise campaign funds.
