Most Jacksonville City Council seats are yoked into Democratic or (more likely) Republican representation due to demographics. A potential exception: District 14, which runs from the Naval Air Station Jacksonville north along the St. Johns River, looping in Ortega, Fairfax, Avondale, Riverside, Murray Hill and other neighborhoods. Tuesday evening offered voters in that district an […]

That’s a car payment, but not nearly enough to […]

November fundraising in 2019 Jacksonville local races saw resource gaps widen between candidates in competitive races. — Believe in Bill?: In At Large Group 2, where Republican Ron Salem faces fellow Republican, former Mayoral hopeful and two-term Councilman Bill Bishop, Salem’s lead grew last month.

Jacksonville City Council candidate Earl Testy has raised $31 thus far in his long shot bid for public office, putting him somewhat behind his opponent, Randy DeFoor, who has $81,000 on hand.
