Democrat Joshua Hicks Announces Bid For Arlington City Council Seat


Jacksonville’s next election for City Council seats isn’t until 2023, but the race is already heating up. 

Democrat Joshua Hicks announced Monday he’s running in City Council’s 3rd District, which is bordered on the west and east roughly by Kernan Boulevard and the Intracoastal Waterway. The seat is currently held by Republican Aaron Bowman. 

“The era of broken promises is over,” Hicks said in his campaign announcement. “Now is the time for honest and responsive leadership on the Jacksonville City Council – leadership that will work for our entire community and not just a select few.” 

Hicks is an administrator at the nonprofit Colorectal Cancer Alliance. He says his priorities on City Council would include attracting companies and small businesses, investing in infrastructure, addressing disparities so every resident has a good quality of life, and tackling climate change. 

Hicks unsuccessfully ran for a State House of Representatives seat in 2020, where he was endorsed by former President Barack Obama and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried.
