When it comes to indigent defense, 27 states fund it fully, another 6 cover more than half of the costs. Only 17 states, including Texas, contribute less than half. In FY 2017 Texas contributed about 15%.

Put another way, Texas property taxpayers shoulder 85% of the costs of indigent defense. Texas is far behind most others states, which fund indigent defense in far greater proportions.

Counties have been around since before Texas became a state, and even before it was a republic. But what do they do?

04/10/2018

Counties are easily the least understood level of Texas government.

04/10/2018

We eat local, we drink local, we shop local.

We also decide local.
We govern local.

Local government is part of what makes Texas great!

SHARED FROM JEWETT HISTORICAL MUSEUM:
If you are a resident in one of the 10 counties that will be invaded by this project, if you are a rural resident whose property will be devalued and destroyed, please take a minute out of your holiday plans to see just where this route is located. Click on the link provided in the post below, locate your county, then click on one of the numbered sections within your county. For instance, our ranch is located in Leon County, Section 2. Then you can scroll up or down within the section to identify your property or move to a section north or south. Please keep in mind if your property is located 2 or more miles to the east or west of the route, you will still feel the effects of this project. Of course ALL of us will bear the devastation of highways and county roads being destroyed, closed or re-routed. That means your commute to work, your children's school bus route, emergency and mail service will no longer exist as they are now. EVERYONE in these counties needs to make sure and attend upcoming public comment meetings on the permitting of this disaster in the making and on the Draft EIS meetings that must be held by February 20th in each of the 10 counties affected. It is imperative that we voice our opposition in these public forums. Watch your newspapers, and go to https://www.facebook.com/TexansAgainstHSR daily for calendar updates.
Also, it is not too late to make a tax deductible donation to the Texans Against High Speed Rail Land Defense Fund.
2018 is the time to get serious about stopping this project in its tracks for good.

On Thursday, Oct. 14, the City of Tallahassee, Leon County Government, The Village Square, and Leadership Tallahassee hosted the Longest Table event on Langford Green on the campus of Florida State University.

The free event welcomed all who RSVP’d to join and all were able to take part in this annual occurrence that celebrates life and culture.

The Longest Table event, which is one of The Power of WE’s largest events of the year, celebrates diversity and collaboration among students, faculty and staff as well as the Tallahassee community.

Thanks to the more than 100 volunteers who came out to help us kick off Placemaking Week by painting the wall outside the downtown Leon County Library, painting over graffiti on nearby business’ properties, and making thank you cards for local health care workers! Paint makes the world brighter, and we hope this newly painted wall mural brings a smile to the faces of library visitors! Thank you Leon County Government and libraries for helping make today happen!
We are so incredibly grateful for Leon County Government, the American Red Cross of North Florida and Team Guardian Inc. for coming together to make today happen! What an incredible, thoughtful, artful memorial this will be for our community!
Leon County Government and KCCI Community Catalysts today unveiled the latest installments of Art of the Box, a growing community-wide initiative that transforms utility boxes into .

The artistically covered County boxes bring the total number of installations to 19 boxes at 15 locations for Art of the Box, a project first piloted by KCCI in fall 2020. In collaboration with partners such as Leon County, the project gives the opportunity to exhibit art outdoors in the public realm and helps deter graffiti. Their artwork is printed onto waterproof vinyl and then wrapped around utility boxes, transforming two-dimensional artworks into outdoor three-dimensional murals for all to enjoy.

The five artists featured today range from a local illustrator to a rising junior at Lincoln High school. The newest Art of the Box artworks can be found at locations throughout Leon County:

• Rosa Cruz, "Lake Nature," featured at Leon County Apalachee Regional Park

• Joy Green, “Happy Kitties,” featured at LeRoy Collins Leon County Main Library

• Stephanie Roche, “The Garden,” featured at Leon County Northeast Branch Library

• Charlotte Spinks, “Hiv(e)voltage,” featured at J. Lewis Hall Sr. Woodville Park

• Robin Washington, “American Lotus, Florida Goods,” featured at the Leon County Courthouse

Visit ArtofTheBox.org to see a complete listing of the locations, download a map, learn more about the artists and more.

Congratulations to the 2021 KCCI Community Catalyst team for working with Leon County Government to make more public art assessable to all in the community.

You're invited to a special panel discussion (FREE via Zoom!), “Created Equal: Stretching Towards Freedom, A Conversation about Florida Emancipation Day” on Thursday, May 20 @ 6:30pm, brought to you by the Leon County Government, The Village Square, and Tallahassee Museum and Florida Humanities.

Panelists include guest historians, Dr. Larry Rivers from Florida A&M University and Dr. Paul Ortiz from the University of Florida, and Founder of The John G. Riley Center & Museum, Althemese Barnes. Keith Simmons from Florida Humanities will facilitate the conversation.
As a soon to be resident of Leon county. I have reviewed Covid statistics around the world. Covid deaths are remarkedly low in this county throughout this last year, and you can see from this attachment, it is NOT due to the use of masks or lockdowns. I have had most of the year to research this, and can provide multiple CDC pieces of evidence to prove this.

This contrived "pandemic" has been used as a cover to make typical illnesses seem like a dangerous unknown, when if you examine your own county records, you will find that most of the less than 30 deaths are the same age-related pre-existing medical conditions people die of each year, including in Wuhan China.

People have been needlessly harmed by the scare tactics used to traumatize them into submission. Students being forced to wear masks is nothing short of Child Abuse! Seniors isolated from family is inhumane! Lift your mandates! In Harris county my family has been mask-free ALL this time! Inform people D3 and Zinc are effective measures to staying healthy!

The more people isolate themselves from nature, the more they are susceptible to it!
THE TSO SALUTES OR FIRST RESPONDERS! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ARE MAKING SACRIFICES TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE AND HEALTHY!

On February 13th, 1960, the Tallahassee Democrat read “The lunch counter in Woolworth’s was closed at noon yesterday when a group of Negroes sat down and asked to be served.”

This coming Thursday, February 13, Leon County Government and The Village Square will together present the 5th annual Created Equal event. They will gather legends from our hometown’s civil rights movement, their families and important figures today to talk about the legacy of these heroes and pose the question “are we sitting together now?” Funded in part by Florida Humanities and Bank of America.

February 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - The Moon, Tallahassee
