Hometown Proud

Jacksonville is the city that made me. It’s where I learned to be a father, a son, a soldier, an entrepreneur and a public servant. Bringing the convention to the First Coast is going to be terrific for our economy,  jobs, and all of Florida. I can’t wait to share my hometown with the rest of America.
