Pensacola Speaks: Criminal Justice Reform, Hiring Our Heroes

May 23, 2016

On News Talk 1370 WCOA, first guest today will be Joe Follick, Director of Communications and External Relations for Florida TaxWatch. We will discuss his latest report that proposes solutions on how Florida deals with non-violent offenders to reduce costly and unnecessary strain on the state corrections budget and facilities. It recommends numerous policy initiatives to promote smarter sentencing, reduce recidivism and save tax dollars, while ensuring a safer Sunshine State.

In the second half hour, I will talk with Jack Norton, Director of Communications for Hiring Our Heroes. Hiring Our Heroes expo is on Thursday, May 26 at Pensacola State College’s Lou Ross Center. The event is for local veterans, transitioning military, and military spouses of all ranks and experience levels who are looking for a new career or job, and is hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and lead sponsor Lockheed Martin.
