As always, there's an enormous amount of potential in Jacksonville. The question is whether this city's leaders are prepared to seize the moment and turn that potential energy into kinetic energy. Obviously we've already seen setbacks this year (see River City Brewing) but it's absolutely not too late to reverse those fortunes.

In short....no.

It will have to be up to the community to seize the moment and pull leadership kicking and screaming along for the ride.
