  10. From Slate: Washington Buzz for week ended 8/18/06

questionYesterday, United Way of Escambia County held a meeting in conjunction with Florida Dept. of Health and Partnership for a Healthy Community – labeled “Escambia Community Collaborative 2006”.

Some of those in attendance: Blaise Adams, Evon Emerson, Dr. John Cavanaugh, Dr. Tom Delano, Kevin Doyle, Flack Logan, Michael Duncan, Honor Bell, Dr. Rick Harper,  Steve Deneke, Rhette Anderson, Dr. John Lanza, Francis Dunham and representatives of Legal  Services, Council of Aging,  Dept. of Children & Families, United Celebral Palsy, DEP, Children Home Services, Catholic Social Services, Catholic Charities, Escambia Coalition on Housing, Lakeview Center, Families First and Better Save Our City.

No elected officials – no Escambia County Commissioners, No one from County Administration, no Pensacola City Councilmen and no one from Stop Our City.

Objectives: Define a vision for a strong, healthy Escambia County; community-wide focus to improve priority issues; develop strategies and target resources to combat problems.

Heated moment: PNJ Publisher Kevin Doyle pushed for the group to list six main issues. One participant chimed in what happens if we do a survey, but public doesn’t want to pay for the solution?

My response: “We lead! We say it’s no longer acceptable to be the poorest or second poorest county in the state of Florida.”

At Chamber Pres. Evon Emerson’s request – the group identified these issues:

Education, Affordable Housing, Poverty, Healthcare, Living Wage, Environment, County-wide Public Transportation.

There are more meetings ahead,but this was a good start.

Connecting the Community features property insurance follow-up

 

Connecting the Community, a public affairs program produced locally at WSRE-TV, will air a one-hour special program concerning the growing property insurance crisis in Florida. This special, scheduled to air 7 p.m. Thursday, August 17, is a follow-up to a July 20 investigative program and will feature a panel of experts on the issue.

 

“Florida’s insurance industry is facing a dilemma that doesn’t appear to be resolved any time soon,” said Tony Ferguson, the show’s producer. “All property owners likely have some level of concern about the future of their coverage, and rightly so. By bringing together this expert advisory panel, we hope to offer guidance and possible solutions that policyholders may not find elsewhere.”

 

The experts chosen for the panel are Steve Burgess, Florida Insurance Consumer Advocate; Cliff Long, Consumer Outreach Coordinator for the Florida Department of Financial Services; Florida Representative Don Brown who is a member of the insurance committee and was recently appointed to Gov. Bush’s Property and Casualty Insurance Reform Committee; and Don McMahon, President of McMahon-Hadder Insurance and current Legislative Chair of Professional Insurance Agents of Florida. These experts will offer their advice to northwest Florida property owners experiencing their insurance problems. Viewers are encouraged to call with their dilemmas.

 

WSRE, PBS for the Gulf Coast, is a service of Pensacola Junior College and has been helping the community “Be more connected” for more than 39 years by encouraging our viewers to engage more deeply in the world around them. Through quality programming and educational outreach services, WSRE can help you “Be More educated, informed and entertained.” More information about WSRE is available at wsre.org.
