A big thank you to Emily Nunez for this information:
Jacksonville City Council has a KEY VOTE on Tuesday, March 23rd.Republican Councilman Rory Diamond has the NOPE (No Obligatory Pay Enlargements) Bill (2020-074) to stop automatic pay increases for politicians and require separate public votes if the Council tries to increase its own salary. NOTE: The Democratic opposition has a sneaky amendment they are pushing that KILLS the Bill. Don't let them confuse you, we need the bill passed WITHOUT amendments and drain the swamp. Here are two ways you can help:
1. Call or send an email in support of the NOPE Bill (2020-074) Sample email below.
2. Show up and speak (or just appear) at Jacksonville City Council next Tuesday, March 23rd at 4:30PM. Council starts at 5:00PM, but you need to get there early and ask for speaker card. You get 3 minutes to speak at the beginning for the meeting. Please feel free to wear your Red Coat, so they know you are with RWCDF and carpool to avoid parking delays.
Your voice does matter and if you do nothing, we get the same result!
I support a stop to all automatic pay raises for Jacksonville City Council and ask you to support Councilman Diamond's NOPE Bill without amendments. We the public deserve to know if you are giving yourself a raise and should have the opportunity to participate and know your vote! We need more transparency in Jacksonville government not less. Please vote YES on 2020-074 WITHOUT amendments. The public has a right to know!
