Tomorrow, the City Commission will discuss the future of FSU & the Citizens Police Board.
Open for a news roundup!
Good morning everyone,
I am in DC today at an Energy Policy Summit, hosted by the American Association of Blacks in Energy! This Summit has encouraged a lot of stimulating discussion around how utilities, policy makers, and companies can ensure the clean energy transition will be just and positively benefit Black and historically underserved communities.
Below is a brief news round-up & update on the Taylor Biro issue.
Brief News Roundup:
🚔 Last Thursday, the Citizen Police Review Board voted unanimously to support Biro’s presence on the board.
🚲 A cyclist sustained serious injuries and has been hospitalized after a crash with a vehicle on Thursday evening. The incident occurred just after 6:30 p.m., near the intersection of North Monroe Street and Lake Shore Drive.
🔫 De'Arius Cannon, the man behind the Half-time Liquors Shooting, which resulted in the death of innocent bystander DeMario “Ro” Murray, was found not guilty of second-degree murder. Leon County Jurors also downgraded an attempted murder charge to attempted manslaughter by act and with a firearm.
💡 Electric bills for Florida Power & Light customers are expected to increase three times next year, possibly amounting to an almost $10/month increase for the average consumer. Note: This rate increase will not affect City of Tallahassee Utilities customers.
🚊A railroad strike was averted, due to Biden “forcing” a vote through Congress. Union railroad workers threatened a strike ahead of the holidays due to dissatisfaction with working conditions and lack of paid sick leave. The forced union contract will grant workers 1 day of paid sick leave. Protestors are upset with Biden for favoring the economy instead of protecting workers or penalizing employers for constantly being understaffed, saying “without the right to strike, workers have no union rights.”
