Wine You, Dine You, Help Me

This past weekend, company executives from the Toyota distribution and processing company JM Family were in town to wine and dine City Council Members.

Jacksonville's finest city servants - and some local JM employees - were treated like royalty as they were taken out in a 173 foot yacht owned by the JM Family (you may have seen it docked downtown over the weekend).  The yacht is rumored to have over 5 bedrooms and an exquisitely large kitchen and dining room that is in addition to the living quarters for the crew that runs the ship and swabs the decks.
 Why would the executives be floating their boat up here all the way from Deerfield Beach to schmooze Council Members?  Your guess is as good as mine.  I do know I'm a little peeved that I didn't get an invite.  I would've loved to cackle loudly about civic matters over a glass of wine with the likes of Daniel Davis and Pat Lockett Felder.
