BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbats to U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown

Brickbats to U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown for making the selection of One Imeson over Gateway Shopping Center as the new location for the Duval County elections center a racial issue. The City Council voted 13-6 Aug. 13 to lease the Imeson location, which Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland said would save the county $3.3 million over a 10-year period. Brown, who's operated a campaign office at Gateway, said the move is an attempt to disenfranchise black voters. Holland said he will attempt to negotiate with Gateway owners to locate a polling place there or find a suitable location nearby.
