As a native of Jacksonville, I’ve always heard that “Jacksonville is on the rise.” However, it’s been the same rhythm and rhyme coming out of city hall with no real change or advancement. I am worried about the state of our city. As a father of two small children, my wife and I refuse to have them sing the same song in 20 years. We want them to be excited about the new heights the city has reached, and to be proud their parents were a part of the progress. I believe that all residents of Duval County deserve a decent quality of life, no matter what part of town or side of the river you live in. If you do too, join us in our campaign to make sure Jacksonville's future is secured now.
