The Great Big Giveaway to a Wealthy Developer happens tonight. Don’t miss it.

Tonight the Jacksonville City Council will “vote” on giving away millions upon millions of tax incentives to a local wealthy developer and a big donor of Mayor Lenny Curry.

We do NOT expect the City Council to do the right thing and vote NO on the “Biggest Deal We Have Ever Done.”

Why do we expect them to Vote Yes?

Because Eye was told by a couple of City Council Members — that deal is done.  And we were told  – “If I don’t vote for this deal, requests for my side of town will be ignored.”

Sounds so much like the Swamp in DC, doesn’t it?

We would love to be surprised tonight but we sure as heck aren’t taking bets on it.

Too bad we don’t have people like President Donald Trump who can stand up and say “Enough. I’m here for the people.  Let’s drain the swamp.”
