Jax City Council? - - - They are a JOKE! A joke perp'ed on the taxpayers and voters of this fine City. When.... have they ever... enacted anything the people wanted? They do not represent the voters - they RESENT the voters!

tlynn...it seems to me that the mayor's decisive NO is not good enough for him. He seems to feel that if the JTA comes up with a 'valid reason' for the extension, then he's for it. BS! I'm no DEM by any means, but the mayor has pleased me on many points. ...Not all...but many. Schellenberg sounds willing to gamble our $$$'s on his terms. Private negotiations? Just asking.

Schellenberger must be a recipient of the JTA's union dollars.

So is he for? Against? Waiting to see which way the wind blows?

"Saying no is not the answer you have to give a credible answer to the citizens other than saying no," says Schellenberg. Huh??? Can anyone make sense of this statement? Please decipher this for me! I'm not stupid, but this statement sure as hell makes no senseā€¦to me any way! Can any of you explain what it is that this guy is trying to say? Is it just me? Or do all of these "politicians" speak a different language?

There isn't a single road in this town that you can drive on without being held up by road construction. It is NEVERENDING! The mayor is right. If they keep this tax, they will continue to WASTE our tax dollars forever. Driving here is already a miserable experience.
