State Representative Janet Adkins will hold a Port Roundtable meeting Thursday, April 16 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
“My office has received emails and calls from constituents voicing concerns about the local port in Fernandina Beach. This roundtable meeting is an opportunity for me to listen to these concerns. Leadership starts with listening and I recognize that the Port of Fernandina is an important partner and neighbor in the community. It is critical that we achieve the necessary balance between the need for the Port to remain viable and successful and the concerns of the neighbors and the local residents. I hope to spend this time listening and would invite you to share your input, ideas and how you think we can strengthen the relationship between the Port and the community.” said Adkins.
The meeting will be in Representative Adkins’ district office located at 905 S. 8th Street, Fernandina Beach. It will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Representative Adkins’ staff will be on hand to facilitate the meeting. Representative Adkins is currently in Tallahassee for the 2015 Session and will be attending the roundtable via the telephone.
For those who wish to travel to Tallahassee they may be able to attend the meeting in person and share information, ideas and solutions to help improve the relationship between the Port and the community. Interested individuals should contact the office for the meeting room location.
