Search for a new Holy Grail is launched

Like her campaign, Democrat Mayor Donna Deegan’s transition committee report is heavily steeped in “inclusivity.”

Whatever that is.

“The Deegan Administration will be guided by the principle that every person should have a voice in City Hall and a seat at the table. Our culture will be an inclusive one where we encourage collaboration between leaders from all walks of life and who look like Jacksonville,” the report says.

This is liberal patois, of course. It sounds good, means nothing.

Obviously, it indicates that Jacksonville is lacking in inclusiveness and needs a healthy dose of it, which will be supplied by its new, woke mayor.

So the first question is, how much inclusivity does Jacksonville have?

How was it measured?

These are important: To determine that it is lacking, you must know the quantity of inclusivity.

Who is included and who is excluded?

From what are the excludees excluded?

Who are the excluders? What are their names?

Is Jacksonville less inclusive than any other city?

As always, when you look for facts and logic in liberal claims, it is a daunting task.

The implication is that every one of the city’s 1 million residents will be involved in every decision by the city government and each one will get his wish.

That will be a feat.

The report paints the city as a backwards and backwoods burg that has accomplished little since it was known as Cowford and will be led into the 21st century by the new occupants of City Hall.

We’re waiting — and hoping to be included in the inclusivity.
