Art of the Deal

Mark R. Howard | 4/26/2017

For the purpose of this column, I want to focus on how Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry took on the LGBTQ-related issue and ask you to decide how you feel about his approach.

Seen one way, Curry handled the LGBTQ ordinance issue in a squirmy, weaselly fashion. He didn’t overtly champion anything — either LGBTQ rights or the value of the ordinance to the city’s business community. Seen another way, he instigated the “conversations” that kept the issue before the public and led to passage of the ordinance, he didn’t lobby against it, and when it passed, he made it clear quickly that he was OK with it becoming law (which the council members must have known when they voted).
