Winners & Losers 8/27/15

Big Brothers Big Sisters
With the help of a grant from IMPACT 100 Pensacola Bay Area, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida successfully recruited 135 male mentors to volunteer in the lives of local boys as part of its  “100 Men in 100 Days” initiative.

Escambia County
Escambia County’s Information Technology, Neighborhood and Human Services, and Facilities departments teamed up to convert the former Water Quality Lab at the request of District 5 Commissioner Steven Barry’s office. The lab at the Carver Park Resource Center in Cantonment consists of 10 computers refurbished from the 911 dispatch center that were donated by the County’s Public Safety Department.

Eric Olson
The Pensacola City Administrator barely escaped a no-confidence vote. His last-minute apology and undying support of his boss, Mayor Ashton Hayward,  swayed Councilman P.C. Wu to force a tie vote. We guess Olson is a special snowflake after all, or it could be the mayor wanted to take a vacation and had no one else to run the city.

350 Pensacola
The environmental group convinced the Escambia Board of County Commissioners to support, by 3-2 vote, a resolution calling for a statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing, acid fracturing, and well stimulation performed for the purposes of exploration or production of oil or natural gas.
