When the going gets tough, will the tough 'Get Gowin?'

Popular restaurant owner tosses his hat in the ring for Jacksonville mayor



“Third generation Rob Gowin resurrected the historic restaurant in 1995, now known as the city’s popular 'Sadler’s Kitchen & Catering,'” the site states. “A JHS Class of 1986 graduate, Rob constantly supports and contributes to numerous district-wide functions. He and Sadler’s Kitchen are proud advocates of making Jacksonville and JISD a great place to live.”

Even the famously-confident Gowin seemed a little humbled this week by the enthusiastic reaction to his announcement he is running for office.

“Wow,” the candidate said in an FB post. “Thank you all for the 'likes' and kind words! Let's 'Get Gowin for Jacksonville' folks!!!”

Facebook friend Lu Bearden Wegmet gave her official stamp of approval for Gowin's political slogan.

“I see that over 200 people 'like' this,” she said in an Facebook post Thursday. “Now to get them (that are eligible) to vote!”
