Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

Local Legislator Not Happy With Protocol Reminder

Jacksonville Rep Audrey Gibson (D) was none too thrilled with an e-mail she received from House Democratic Spokesman Mark Hollis.  His e-mail and her response are below:

From: Hollis, Mark 
Sent: Thursday, March 26, 2009 12:17 PM
To: Hollis, Mark
Subject: members, if you are on the House floor…

Members, 
 
If you are presently on the House floor, please show the appropriate courtesy to your colleagues during their floor remarks/questions.
 
That means putting away Blackberries/laptops, quieting your private conversations, and focusing on your colleagues’ remarks.
 
YOU ARE BEING WATCHED on television and elsewhere.

Mr.  Hollis,
 
I must advise you that I find your e-mail both unprofessional, and out of place. I have held my peace on several items sent from you that lack professionalism and in fact are embarrassing. I have always treated staff with courtesy and professionalism, and I expect no less in return. Please refrain from sending me such e-mails in the future.

They always say that Democrats eat their own…
