LETTER TO THE EDITOR: With your help, Jacksonville’s potential limitless

Jacksonville Daily Progress

JACKSONVILLE — To the Citizens of Jacksonville,

I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all your support and for blessing me with the chance to represent our great community for another term as mayor. You have entrusted me with the future of Jacksonville, and that is a privilege and an honor that I take very seriously.

In particular, I want to thank my supporters, who donated so much of their time and effort to my campaign – this would not have been possible without all that you did.

I'd also like to thank my fellow candidates, Rob Gowin and William Igbokwe, for an energetic campaign and a spirited debate. Both of these men are great assets to the local community, and I hope they will continue to be active in making Jacksonville the best place it can be.

The people of Jacksonville truly are its greatest resource, and it is humbling to have the support of those people as we look to maintain and build upon the positive momentum of the last decade. With your help, Jacksonville's potential is limitless.


Kenneth Melvin


City of Jacksonville
