Duval Delegation elects Jay Fant new chair, Aaron Bean vice-chair

The Duval County Legislative Delegation selected a new chair and a new vice-chair on Wednesday, during a meeting in Jacksonville.

Stepping down from the chair: Mia Jones, who reminded the new members that “home is where the rubber meets the road,” and to not fall into the trap of putting state issues over local concerns.

Selected as chair: Rep. Jay Fant, who was voted chair by unanimous vote.

Fant noted that Rep. Jones “will be missed,” especially as an advocate for education.

“When Rep. Jones is in the debate, you can count on her to be civil … courteous,” Fant said, noting the delegation has “leaned on her the last couple of years.”

Selected as vice-chair: Sen. Aaron Bean.
