Letter from the Mayor


Dear Guests:


It is my privilege to welcome you to Jacksonville for the 2017 International Economic Development Council Leadership Summit.

During the months since, Jacksonville has earned statewide recognition for job growth, as Governor Rick Scott recently announced that our city has gained over 21,000 jobs within one year and that our unemployment rate fell to a seven year low of 4.4 percent.
