School Board Meeting
I attended the School Board Meeting last night. The hot topic was the proposed purchase of the Jordan District Office Building located at Jordan Landing, which the District has been leasing since the split. This issue is the first I have seen where the Board was publicly divided. The vote was 4-3 in favor of the purchase. Rick Bojak, Leah Voorhies, Peggy Jo Kennett, and Richard Osborn voted in favor with Carmen Freeman, Corbin White, and Susan Pulsipher voting against. For a full description of the discussion, please see the JEA Facebook page. It was a very interesting meeting.
