Jax Daily Record serves as Mouthpiece of Downtown Parking Lot Owners



The Jacksonville Daily Record is taking the position of legal advisor and advocate for downtown blight and the destruction of historic structures. They recently published an article (http://www.jaxdailyrecord.com/showstory.php?Story_id=47132) in response to MetroJacksonville.com raising questions (content/view/368/79/) with regard to the legality of the practices employed by downtown's private surface parking lot owners.

what the hell is going on?

Is the Daily Record in bed with the parking lots?

Its no secret that the owner, Bailey, owns a lot of the property downtown, does he own parking lots?

Conflict of interest if ever there was one.

Chew them up, guys and expose this bs.

Great expose!  Does anyone have the skinny on Bailey's possible ownership of downtown lots?  By the way, what reporter in his right journalistic mind would've written a piece like this (for the Daily Record) knowing of his bossman's conflict of interest?

Has anyone from the city looked into this? It seems pretty clear that these parking lot owners expect everyone to follow the letter of the law regarding their payment, but are clearly not operating in good faith. These pictures really tell the story. Look at what is going on!

If anyone ever looks into the role that Metropolitan Parking Solutions has played in the downtown parking fiasco, you guys at Metro Jacksonville could blow the lid off of the rank corruption and insider deal making that would make Jack Abramoff proud.
