What We Found

The permits were paid for by one of the co-organizers of the event, John Aloszka out of pocket. 

John Aloszka is a student at the University of North Florida and he is the current Communications Director of the Jacksonville Young Democrats. 

We obtained these documents by reaching out to Aloszka on Facebook. We found his profile on the public page for the Tax March event. 

Aloszka went on to tell First Coast News that beyond the cost of the permit, the only other thing the protestors had was a sound system, which is owned by the other co-organizer, Doreszell Cohen.
