A recap of election night; Hug-a-Farmer Spring Market; What’s Good Wednesday
We still don’t know who the next mayor of Jacksonville will be.
That’s because no candidate got the percentage needed to win yesterday’s election outright. Democrat Donna Deegan and Republican Daniel Davis received the most votes out of the crowded field and will advance to a runoff election in May.
Last month, City Councilwoman Randy DeFoor appeared on this program and said that Daniel Davis was deeply involved behind the scenes in the failed push to sell JEA — something she said needs to be highlighted in the mayor’s race.
In addition to the mayoral runoff, several City Council races will be decided during the May runoffs.
We reached out to Daniel Davis’ campaign but did not get a response.
- Donna Deegan, Democratic candidate for Jacksonville mayor.
