Downtown and Arlington Councils Host Public Policy Forum

July 21st, 2011 · Leave a Comment

Did you see Florida Sen. John Thrasher and Audrey Moran, co-chair of Mayor Alvin Brown’s transition team, at the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce’s first Public Policy Executive Overview earlier this week? The Downtown and Arlington Councils welcomed more than 75 local business leaders to the forum, which examined state and local budget process.

“Our first forum was a tremendous success,” said Downtown Council President Pat Geer. “The program engaged the audience while providing critical and relevant information about changes in the state and local budgets that may affect local businesses.”

During the program, Sen. Thrasher offered his observations on Florida’s state budgeting issues while Moran focused on Jacksonville budget matters. Both presenters spoke candidly and offered keen insight on the economic impact facing big businesses and local entrepreneurs alike during a question-and-answer session with the audience.
