WJCT-FM to begin Jacksonville election coverage at 7 p.m. Tuesday

For those who want the best analysis of the Jacksonville municipal election, check out WJCT FM 89.9, where this site’s Melissa Ross will host starting at 7 Tuesday night. Adding insights as results come in will be yours truly, along with other special guests.

We will discuss all of the nearly two dozen races — the 19 city council contests, the seven-way sheriff’s race, the Supervisor of Elections contest between Mike Hogan and Tracie Davis, and the most interesting electoral contest of 2015 so far, the mayoral race with incumbent Alvin Brown, Republican nominee Lenny Curry, former council President Bill Bishop, and NPA hopeful Omega Allen.

The rule in the “First” elections: 50 percent plus 1 vote wins outright. These will be exciting contests up and down the ticket, and those listening to WJCT will get analysis  worthy of the drama and the high stakes of these contests, as Duval County negotiates its future.
