Radio Host Tom Joyner Joins Mayor Brown To Encourage Jacksonville Residents To Vote

May 8, 2015

Nationally syndicated radio host Tom Joyner joined Congresswoman Corrine Brown, Congressman Cedric Richmond and Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown at a “Get out the vote” rally Friday afternoon.

Joyner, whose morning show airs locally on HOT 106.5 FM, called on the crowd to reach out to their friends and family to re-elect the current mayor, even inviting supporters to pass him their cell phones so he could speak to potential voters directly.

“Get them on the phone. I want to talk to them,” he said. “I’m serious. If you know somebody that’s a registered voter who hasn’t voted, who hasn’t early voted, get them on the phone right now. And if you get their voicemail, let me leave a message.”

Nearly 150 people attended the rally at the Gateway Town Center.
