March 16, 2012
JAXPORT CEO Paul Anderson discussed the role of the port in supporting the state’s economy with Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater this morning at JAXPORT’s Talleyrand headquarters. With nearly $7 returning to the state in positive economic benefit for every dollar invested in seaports, Anderson advocated for continued concentration by state leaders on maintaining and then growing the port. He also praised state lawmakers, who recently approved funding levels and programming aimed at offering unprecedented levels of support for all of Florida’s ports. After meeting with Anderson, Atwater and other state political leaders got a first-hand look at JAXPORT’s terminals at work, touring the Talleyrand, Blount Island and Dames Point Marine Terminals.
