Student sends Mayor Curry letter expressing support for school tax
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A fifth grader at Fishweir Elementary School wrote a letter to Mayor Lenny Curry and the Jacksonville City Council expressing support for a half-cent sales tax that would help crumbling schools in Duval County. Audrey Parman, a 10-year-old, said she loves her school, but it's about to be 103 years old. Audrey's letter to the mayor and City Council encourages them to allow voters to decide on the half-cent sales tax. Curry emailed a response to Aubrey, which reads:Dear Ms. Parman, Thank you for sharing this letter from your daughter, Audrey. Like any local legislation, the sales tax proposal by the Duval County School Board will go before City Council for consideration.
