Since taking office in 2015, I have been committed to governing with a steadfast commitment to fiscal accountability and responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars.

Budgets are about priorities, and the Mayor’s budgets reflect the core principles that guide his administration with major investments in priorities like public safety, youth initiatives, economic development, infrastructure and neighborhoods.

In 2017, I implemented my pension reform plan to place Jacksonville in a stronger financial position. In prior years, nearly 20 percent of the city’s annual operating budget went toward pensions instead of services and infrastructure that benefit the community. As a result of pension reform, I was able to strengthen his commitment to public safety with increased investments in manpower, improvements to infrastructure, and downtown development opportunities.

I am dedicated to continuing investments that allow Jacksonville to grow and produce the maximum return for taxpayers. I maintain my commitment to using sound fiscal policies, reducing city debt, and contributing to reserves and contingencies that prepare for unforeseen challenges.
