The State Of Affairs For Jacksonville Was The Main Topic Tonight
Representative Kimberly Daniels took some time out of her schedule on Monday night to hold her First Town Hall Meeting since she won the election back on November 7, 2016.
WE NEED TO UNITE TO MAKE CHANGE
Parents Need To Take a Stand With Their Kids
“It takes all 3 branches of Government to effect change”, Representative Daniels said, “and thanks to some friends here tonight, we are making change.”
Joining the Town Hall was current Jacksonville City Council President Anna Lopez Brosche, District 7 Councilman Reggie Gaffney, District 9 Councilman Garrett L. Dennis and District 10 Councilman Reginald L. Brown.
In her Freshman year as a Representative, Daniels has sponsored 15 Bills and co-co-sponsored another 21. One of which is FL H0303, Authorizes public school students & school personnel to express religious viewpoints & engage in certain religious activities without discrimination; provides for enforcement of such rights under Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1998.
Representative Daniels fought for FL H2869 helping the Wayman Community Development At-Risk Services Program
and FL H3509 No One Left Behind – Veterans Initiative
And was instrumental in bringing Jacksonville Florida $325,000 in State Money to start the Shotspotter Pilot Program. The technology uses sensors to pick up the sound of gunfire, then pinpoint how many shots were fired and where, within about 80 feet. Then within 30 to 45 seconds that information is sent to first responders, all without one call to 911. While technology won’t stop a shooting from happening, it could help lead officers to a shooter faster and stop another shot from being fired.
From septic tanks in homes, to the elderly without Air Conditioning, the plights of Jacksonville Florida was brought out and talked about.
“I believe in QUALITY Education”, Daniels said, “Public School, Private School, Charter School or Home School.” “We need to work together to stop these School Closings.”
Daniels was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in November after her City Council re-election bid was unsuccessful.
