“Mayor Lauren Poe, Commissioner Adrian Hayes-Santos, Commissioner Harvey Ward, and Commissioner David Arreola all said they wanted to continue to be named in the [local firearm law preemption] case.”

Ward said he wasn’t looking forward to the [electric rate] increases: “I don’t want to pay it myself. I believe it’s necessary… I want to point out that one of the reasons we are where we are, cost-wise, is that the people of Gainesville have consistently said ‘We want renewable energy.’ And that predates everybody up here. Well, one of the ways we do that is by having a biomass plant, a renewable energy plan… Renewable energy is not as cheap as, say, coal.”

The motion passed 5-2, with Johnson and Duncan-Walker in dissent.
