JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Each of the city's 14 districts is represented by its own council member elected by voters in that district. Each candidates' party affiliation is listed on the ballot, but the city holds unitary elections, so Duval County registered voters of any party can vote for any candidate.
Incumbent Councilman Scott Wilson is being challenged by Timothy Yost in this district that represents a Southside that is primarily south of Atlantic Boulevard, east of University Boulevard, north of J. Turner Butler Boulevard and west of Interstate 295.
News4Jax asks each candidate for office a uniform set of questions hoping to get beyond campaign statements or media filters to help voters decide which candidate they will support. Below are the candidates' verbatim responses.
Wilson, a Republican, is seeking re-election. He has not replied to the News4Jax candidate survey.
