GAETZ CONTINUES MULLING BID FOR UWF PRESIDENCY

Senator Gaetz

Senator Gaetz

THE CAPITAL, TALLAHASSEE, July 22, 2016………. As the University of West Florida searches for a new president — and the Aug. 15 application deadline approaches — former state Senate President Don Gaetz says he’ll likely wait until then to decide whether to pursue the top job at the Pensacola school.

“I am taking counsel with people I respect,” said Gaetz, a Niceville Republican who cannot run again for the Senate this year because of term limits. “But I expect I’ll make a decision by mid-August.”

University of West Florida President Judith Bense is retiring at the end of the year, and the university’s board of trustees will vote on her successor Sept. 15.

If Gaetz pursues the job, he could follow in the footsteps of another powerful political figure, former House Speaker John Thrasher, who became president of Florida State University after a contentious process in 2014.

But by waiting, Gaetz also could avoid the controversy that surrounded Thrasher’s bid for the Florida State presidency. That controversy included the Florida State search committee pausing the process to interview only Thrasher. Committee members said Thrasher’s desire for the job had kept other potential candidates from applying.

At the University of West Florida, however, where the search committee met Friday, 60 candidates have already submitted applications, with more expected — including that of Provost Martha Saunders, who told the Pensacola News Journal this month that she intended to apply.

What’s more, said former Florida House Speaker Allan Bense, a longtime ally of both Gaetz and Thrasher, the latter’s performance as Florida State president could smooth Gaetz’s path to the top job at the University of West Florida.

“With (Thrasher’s) success, I think it makes it a bit easier for Don Gaetz, if in fact the search committee and the trustees select him,” said Bense, who is Judith Bense’s brother and was chairman of Florida State’s Board of Trustees when it tapped Thrasher for the top job. “It makes his ride a little smoother than John’s was.”

University of West Florida Board of Trustees Chairman Lewis Bear, Jr., said the school has an open selection process, with emphasis placed on advancing its 10-year goal of achieving what’s known as “emerging preeminence” status within the state system. That would require hitting six of 12 benchmarks dealing with research and other aspects of faculty and student achievement. It also would garner additional state funding.

“It’s a pretty far reach for us, but the administration was willing to work towards it,” Bear said. “So I think that anybody who applies for this position needs to understand that we’re very serious about changing our — what’s considered a small-town university — into a major university in the state of Florida.”

Given that Gaetz authored the “emerging preeminence” legislation that passed in 2016, “he probably has a better understanding of what that means in Florida” than an out-of-state candidate, Bear said. “But creating the law that establishes something does not, I don’t think, give you a leg up in meeting the challenge.”

Gaetz — who as Senate president appointed Bear to the Enterprise Florida board of directors in 2013 — said it’s up to the university to decide “whether they need to continue with an inside focus and an inside candidate or whether they need to broaden the leadership base.”

He acknowledged he did not have experience in higher education but added that he went into other jobs in the past without experience in the fields. That included his former role as superintendent of the Okaloosa County schools.

“I am sort of the quintessential non-traditional candidate for every job I’ve ever had,” he said. “What I’ve tried to do is build teams and manage teams that could exceed expectations.”

Allan Bense also pointed out — as have members of the search committee — that Gaetz would likely find a ready ear at the state Capitol.

As to the question of hiring another powerful politician to steer a state university, Jennifer Proffitt, president of the United Faculty of Florida, said the union simply wanted the process to be open and transparent.

“My concern during the whole FSU search process — and what I said in front of the board (of trustees) many times — was that the search was not open and transparent,” said Proffitt, who was president of the union’s Florida State chapter when Thrasher was selected. “I think that is critical. … Higher education folks care about process.”

Bense, who said the Florida State search committee ultimately heard many hours of public testimony, agreed.

“If I were the (UWF) selection committee, I’d keep my eyes wide open and take a look at all of the applicants — all of them,” he said.

FINANCE AND TAXATION

SECTION 3.  Taxes; exemptions.—

(a)  All property owned by a municipality and used exclusively by it for municipal or public purposes shall be exempt from taxation. A municipality, owning property outside the municipality, may be required by general law to make payment to the taxing unit in which the property is located. Such portions of property as are used predominantly for educational, literary, scientific, religious or charitable purposes may be exempted by general law from taxation.

(b)  There shall be exempt from taxation, cumulatively, to every head of a family residing in this state, household goods and personal effects to the value fixed by general law, not less than one thousand dollars, and to every widow or widower or person who is blind or totally and permanently disabled, property to the value fixed by general law not less than five hundred dollars.

(c)  Any county or municipality may, for the purpose of its respective tax levy and subject to the provisions of this subsection and general law, grant community and economic development ad valorem tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of existing businesses, as defined by general law. Such an exemption may be granted only by ordinance of the county or municipality, and only after the electors of the county or municipality voting on such question in a referendum authorize the county or municipality to adopt such ordinances. An exemption so granted shall apply to improvements to real property made by or for the use of a new business and improvements to real property related to the expansion of an existing business and shall also apply to tangible personal property of such new business and tangible personal property related to the expansion of an existing business. The amount or limits of the amount of such exemption shall be specified by general law. The period of time for which such exemption may be granted to a new business or expansion of an existing business shall be determined by general law.

(1)  Twenty-five thousand dollars of the assessed value of property subject to tangible personal property tax shall be exempt from ad valorem taxation.

(2)  The assessed value of solar devices or renewable energy source devices subject to tangible personal property tax may be exempt from ad valorem taxation, subject to limitations provided by general law.

(f)  There shall be granted an ad valorem tax exemption for real property dedicated in perpetuity for conservation purposes, including real property encumbered by perpetual conservation easements or by other perpetual conservation protections, as defined by general law.

(g)  By general law and subject to the conditions specified therein, each person who receives a homestead exemption as provided in section 6 of this article; who was a member of the United States military or military reserves, the United States Coast Guard or its reserves, or the Florida National Guard; and who was deployed during the preceding calendar year on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the legislature shall receive an additional exemption equal to a percentage of the taxable value of his or her homestead property. The applicable percentage shall be calculated as the number of days during the preceding calendar year the person was deployed on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the legislature divided by the number of days in that year.

SECTION 4.  Taxation; assessments.—By general law regulations shall be prescribed which shall secure a just valuation of all property for ad valorem taxation, provided:

(a)  Agricultural land, land producing high water recharge to Florida’s aquifers, or land used exclusively for noncommercial recreational purposes may be classified by general law and assessed solely on the basis of character or use.

(b)  As provided by general law and subject to conditions, limitations, and reasonable definitions specified therein, land used for conservation purposes shall be classified by general law and assessed solely on the basis of character or use.

(c)  Pursuant to general law tangible personal property held for sale as stock in trade and livestock may be valued for taxation at a specified percentage of its value, may be classified for tax purposes, or may be exempted from taxation.

(d)  All persons entitled to a homestead exemption under Section 6 of this Article shall have their homestead assessed at just value as of January 1 of the year following the effective date of this amendment. This assessment shall change only as provided in this subsection.

(1)  Assessments subject to this subsection shall be changed annually on January 1st of each year; but those changes in assessments shall not exceed the lower of the following:

a. Three percent (3%) of the assessment for the prior year.

(4)  New homestead property shall be assessed at just value as of January 1st of the year following the establishment of the homestead, unless the provisions of paragraph (8) apply. That assessment shall only change as provided in this subsection.

(5)  Changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to homestead property shall be assessed as provided for by general law; provided, however, after the adjustment for any change, addition, reduction, or improvement, the property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(6)  In the event of a termination of homestead status, the property shall be assessed as provided by general law.

(7)  The provisions of this amendment are severable. If any of the provisions of this amendment shall be held unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, the decision of such court shall not affect or impair any remaining provisions of this amendment.

If this revision is approved in January of 2008, a person who establishes a new homestead as of January 1, 2008, is entitled to have the new homestead assessed at less than just value only if that person received a homestead exemption on January 1, 2007. The assessed value of the newly established homestead shall be determined as follows:

1.  If the just value of the new homestead is greater than or equal to the just value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be the just value of the new homestead minus an amount equal to the lesser of $500,000 or the difference between the just value and the assessed value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned. Thereafter, the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

2.  If the just value of the new homestead is less than the just value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be equal to the just value of the new homestead divided by the just value of the prior homestead and multiplied by the assessed value of the prior homestead. However, if the difference between the just value of the new homestead and the assessed value of the new homestead calculated pursuant to this sub-subparagraph is greater than $500,000, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be increased so that the difference between the just value and the assessed value equals $500,000. Thereafter, the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

b.  By general law and subject to conditions specified therein, the legislature shall provide for application of this paragraph to property owned by more than one person.

(e)  The legislature may, by general law, for assessment purposes and subject to the provisions of this subsection, allow counties and municipalities to authorize by ordinance that historic property may be assessed solely on the basis of character or use. Such character or use assessment shall apply only to the jurisdiction adopting the ordinance. The requirements for eligible properties must be specified by general law.

(3)  Tras un cambio de dueño, como es provisto por la ley, los bienes de familia deben ser tasados a su valor de mercado al 1° de enero del siguiente año, a menos que se apliquen las previsiones del inciso (8). En lo sucesivo, la vivienda debe ser tasada como está previsto en este inciso.

(4)  Los nuevos bienes de familia deben ser tasados a su valor de mercado a partir del 1° de enero al año siguiente al establecimiento de la propiedad, a menos que se apliquen las previsiones del inciso (8). Esa tasación sólo debe modificarse según está previsto en este inciso.

Si esta revisión es aprobada en enero de 2008, una persona con una nueva propiedad a partir del 1° de enero de 2008, tiene derecho a que la tasación de aquella sea menor a la de su valor de mercado sólo si esa persona recibió una exención para la propiedad el 1° de enero de 2007. El valor de tasación de las nuevas propiedades debe estar determinado por lo siguiente:

1.  Si el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad es mayor o igual al de la anterior a partir del 1° de enero del año en el que la propiedad anterior fue dejada, el valor de tasación de la nueva debe ser el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad menos un monto igual o menor a $500.000, o la diferencia entre el valor de mercado y el valor de tasación de la propiedad anterior a partir del 1° de enero del año en el que fue dejada.

Sin embargo, si la diferencia entre el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad y el valor de tasación calculado de acuerdo a este subinciso es mayor a $500.000, el valor de tasación de la nueva propiedad debe aumentarse para que la diferencia entre el valor de mercado y el valor de tasación sea de $500.000- En lo sucesivo, la propiedad debe ser tasada como está provisto en este inciso.

b.  Por ley y de acuerdo a las condiciones especificadas en este documento, la legislatura dispondrá sobre la aplicación de este párrafo a las propiedades con más de un propietario.

(e)  La legislatura puede, por ley, con propósitos de tasación y sujeto a las provisiones de este inciso, permitirle a los municipios y municipalidades que emitan una ordenanza que indique que las propiedades con valor histórico sean tasadas sobre la base de su naturaleza o su uso. La tasación en relación a su naturaleza o uso debe aplicarse sólo a la jurisdicción especificada en la ordenanza. Los requerimientos para que las propiedades sean así consideradas deben estar especificados por ley.

(f)  Un condado puede, de acuerdo a la ley, prever la reducción del valor de tasación de una propiedad  en la medida en que el aumento del valor sea el resultado de la construcción o mejora de la propiedad con el objetivo de proporcionarle una vivienda a un adulto mayor, consanguíneo o adoptivo, a los padres del dueño o de su esposa si al menos uno de ellos tiene 62 años o más. Dicha reducción no podrá exceder al menos uno de los siguientes:

(1)  El aumento del valor de tasación resultado de la construcción o mejora de la propiedad.

Our jobs depend on the support and approval of our community, said Chief Weeks.”

This nation was founded on government being for the people and by the people. “We have not gotten away from that, said Chief Weeks. The people we serve have a major voice in the business of law enforcement. I would like to personally thank our citizens and businesses for their support during these trying times.”
