Jacksonville Councilwoman Sues City Council

Tensions are rising on one local city council. One council member is suing the council as a whole and calling out another council member in the suit.

Jacksonville City councilwoman Angelia Washington is suing the city council for approving a low-rent apartment complex in her neighborhood, according to the Jacksonville Daily news. The paper reported the suit alleges Councilman Jerome Willingham met with developers outside of public hearings on the project.

Washington recused herself from the vote on the matter and says Willingham should have done the same, according to the paper. Willingham denied any meetings with the developers to the Jacksonville Daily News.
