The Florida Times-Union is introducing a new quarterly magazine on Downtown in June titled “J.”  As part of this project,  the editorial page staff is compiling a group of readers in an Email Group for Downtown.  These readers will be asked questions that relate to Downtown.  There is no obligation, just a chance to sound off on Downtown issues.  If you would like to join the group, please email Editorial Page Editor Mike Clark:  He will send you a questionnaire.  The editorial page also will be making Downtown one of its focus issues for the daily Opinion pages.  The Times-Union thanks you for your consideration.
