Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry featured on a billboard in Los Angeles.

People driving through Inglewood, Calif. on their way to the Los Angeles International Airport this week will be greeted by an unfamiliar face on a massive billboard hanging over La Tijera Boulevard — Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry.

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports the billboard is part of a campaign urging residents in Los Angeles and three other major cities to move to Jacksonville.

“Non-stop flight from LAX to JAX...why not make it one way?” the sign reads. “No state taxes. Affordable real estate. Fresh air.”

Similar signs are also being placed in Chicago, New York and Washington D.C., the city told News4Jax.
