Sara Jane Carter represented her firm in lieu of Meagan Logan, esq. at the Tuesday October 13th regularly scheduled Council Meeting in White Springs. She has recently been nominated to be the Judge for Columbia County.
Sara Jane Carter is a relentless advocate and litigator. She is a fifth-generation North Floridian. She gained considerable experience working for nation- and state-wide law firms. Her vast experience includes representing corporations and insurance companies in complex civil litigation matters in the areas of personal injury, premises liability, nursing home defense, and real estate litigation. She employs this experience to help injured people receive adequate compensation and be made whole.
Ms. Carter devotes a significant amount of her practice to helping clients through a divorce and other family law matters including child support, paternity and time-sharing issues.
In addition to her law practice, Ms. Carter is co-owner and manager of a fifth-generation, family-owned timber farm.
Ms. Carter is a volunteer and former board member for Guardian Ad Litem, helping give a voice to children in the legal system. She is also a member of the National Association of Professional Women.
She stated that Attorney Logan is attempting to get the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) form which is acceptable and a letter to the Florida League of Cities so that The Medical Bills for Fire Lieutenant Tom Brazil may be reconsidered as well as Medical Records stipulating Tom Brazil is medically fit to be a Firefighter. Mr. Brazil is willing to provide any and all information including a physical examination.
Senior Vice President of Commercial Lending Lacrecia Barber of First Federal received Mr. Tommie Jerome Jones letter of resignation but the bank is holding off on any offer of a line of credit since Mr. Jones signed the Town of White Springs applications and other forms. (Mr. Jones as a third party contractor not representing White Springs but rather Countyline Design should never have been allowed to handle Town Business by signing contracts and checks or handling the finances of White Springs – Karin) With Helen Miller’s resignation, this leaves a perplexing problem for Curt’s Construction who have not been paid as well as the three council people who have a quorum.
There is no one to sign checks who is on the council since both Helen Miller and Tom Moore have resigned). These three remaining council members shall then have to nominate end elect by majority vote a Mayor among its remaining members as well as a Vice Mayor. The three, especially Nicole Williams and Anita Rivers have no idea of the Laws of the State and even if they have read parts of the charter, they cannot seem to comprehend what they have read so it will definitely be a problem for them and as for us, we welcome the State of Florida to take us over. What we have here is a Black Lives Matter Takeover in my opinion with Nicole Williams having the biggest voice. Don’t expect Helen Miller to bail you two (Nicole and Anita) out as she has in the past. After Miller’s resignation she no longer has the weight of fixing everyone’s problems and fighting for the people any longer. What you three do it is up to you. And although Jacqueline Williams has a wealth of experience in her profession, the three of you are ignorant to everything relating to the law, but like Dennis Price stated “Good Luck”.
The Personnel and Procedures Manual has been approved 5-0 although it is obvious Rivers, and the two Williams may not have even read the changes which were on the blog in simple sight for them to understand if they are even a little bit capable.
The Department of Transportation Mill Street Project Resolution is ready to be read. The Florida Department of Transportation provides the funds. This will assist with the repairs and Drainage and FDOT added $50,840 in grants to have it completed. Tom Moore made the motion and Jacqueline Williams seconded the motion with a 5-0.
Resolution 20-18 was read regarding the Mill Street Project funds by FDOT and Contractor Art Walker. The resolution was adopted by a motion by Tom Moore and seconded by Jacqueline Williams.
