Tale of Two Cities
The Jacksonville, Florida, “The Times-Union” had an interesting editorial this week where they compared a “tale of two cities.”
The two cities are Jacksonville, FL, and Norfolk, VA.
Jacksonville lost the USS John F. Kennedy when it was decommissioned and now the 5,000 men and women and their families from the carrier and many more jobs in supporting the ship and is no long part of the Jacksonville economy.
Jacksonville wants a new navy nuclear carrier to be home ported at Jacksonville.
Unfortunately, the politicians in VA are screaming that they need the jobs in Norfolk.
