Joshua is a North Floridian, who made Jacksonville his forever home after falling in love with the people and community. It’s where he married his husband, Phillip, and where they plan to start a family. Raised with his two brothers in Tallahassee by a single mother, who often worked multiple jobs to provide for them, Joshua learned at an early age the meaning of a hard day’s work, and he plans to bring that same work ethic to serve his community on the Jacksonville City Council.
A non-profit professional, Joshua's career reflects his values. He's running for Jacksonville City Council At-Large, Group 2 because he believes in building a better future for young people, ensure every family has access to healthcare, promote equal opportunity for all, protect the environment, address the housing crisis, and improve the infrastructure system by refocusing the community's attention on addressing the needs of the entire community.
Joshua believes in coming together, supporting the community, and returning the focus of local government back towards people. He is motivated by the same principles instilled in him by his family, encouraged by the fact that challenges are NOT insurmountable. It’s about serving the people and that by working together, the community can move Jacksonville forward.
