I know first-hand how important the partnership between our city’s mayor and our law enforcement community is in keeping our neighborhoods safe and full of opportunity, and I am confident Daniel will continue to honor those who serve and the sacrifices they make.

“We see around the nation what happens to cities when they have leadership that doesn’t back the men and women in law enforcement, and we are confident that he will always have the backs of law enforcement.” 

Jacksonville Grown

Like so many of you, I am Jacksonville Grown. I grew up on the westside the youngest of five. We didn’t have much, but we had food on the table and we had the things that mattered – we had faith. We had each other.

My dad was a pastor and growing up in church taught me the value of community. I learned that no one should go it alone, no one should go hungry, and no one should go without a warm place to lay their head.  That is the definition of community.

My parents taught us the value of an honest day’s work. On Saturdays, the lawnmower was our alarm clock. We’d spend the day doing yard work and other jobs around the house. Our reward? Pizza at the end of the day and the pride of a job well-done.

As a teenager, I’d earn extra money building swimming pools and parking cars at the Omni Hotel. And one thing was obvious to me even then – anything is possible.

This isn’t just my story – it’s a story so many of us share. It’s the Jacksonville story and it’s what’s at stake in our next election.

The access to opportunities and the pathway to prosperity for all is what I am fighting to preserve for every Jacksonville kid.  From the Westside, to the Northside, at our beaches, in Arlington and in every neighborhood across Jacksonville.

Community Icon

Community-Focused

For too long Jacksonville’s critics have said we’re destined to be ranked among good US cities stuck in a holding pattern on the way to being great. I don’t believe that. I know that the Jacksonville that has raised each of us is capable of so much more.

We can strengthen our public schools AND foster school choice to meet the needs of our students. We can love our people AND fight crime at the same time.

We can grow jobs AND prepare infrastructure. We can have success at the Port AND protect the river. We can create world class amenities for sports and entertainment opportunities for everyone AND perform the nuts and bolts of government.

We can serve the diverse needs of our communities today AND build toward the Jacksonville of tomorrow.

“We know that the ultimate crime fighter is a world class education, the dignity of a job and access to opportunity for everyone. I’ll take on our tough challenges and seize our biggest opportunities, because the hardworking people of Jacksonville deserve the same chance I had to succeed in this great city.”
