During Frank Norton Jr.'s annual Native Intelligence report Thursday night, the Gainesville real estate executive touched on a diverse range of topics. Among the issues, he discussed the lack of affordable housing and criticized what he described as over-regulation by local government. "Sometimes, we feel we're the lone cry in the wilderness," Norton told the group of hundreds at the Gainesville Civic Center.
