Profile of Jacksonville's Mayor Lenny Curry

Jason Garcia | 4/26/2017

All of a sudden, things are happening in Jacksonville.

On a Saturday in mid-February, city leaders announced a deal with the leadership of their police and fire unions that could eventually make Jacksonville one of the first cities in the country to eliminate traditional pension plans. Seventy-two hours later, the city council ended years of divisive debate and adopted protections for the LGBTQ community against discrimination.

Both issues have been chronic headaches for the city of nearly 1 million people.

Driving the sudden progress is Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry.
