What do you see as the top three issues in this race?
In the last several years I have seen an increase in panhandling and loitering in the neighborhoods surrounding Beach Blvd. I believe many of these same people are camping in the wooded areas or parks. This activity has a negative impact on property values and makes people feel unsafe. I will work with our new Sheriff to enforce state statutes and local ordinances.
Encouraging companies with high paying jobs to relocate to Jacksonville such as manufacturing and industrial type jobs.
