Our campaign team would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the 56,780 Duval County residents who cast their vote for Dr. Tony Cummings in the 2019 campaign for sheriff, making that contest one of the strongest Election Day challenges to an incumbent sheriff in Duval County in decades....................Despite our strong showing, we came up short of reaching our intended goal..............We're back in this 2023 Open Seat Election, as a Front-Runner candidacy, to again ask for your support to finish the job that our campaign team started....................The taxpayers of Jacksonville spend nearly $500 million annually for police services, and yet our city remains "The Homicide Capital of Florida" with a record 162 homicides in 2019, and a record breaking 176 homicides in 2020, according to FBI.gov statistical data...............In addition, the watchdog group "Smart Growth America" ranked our city 10th nationwide in pedestrian deaths (source: SmartGrowthAmerica.org)..............This Is Simply Unacceptable...............If you agree, please take a minute to share this website with your Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In and other social-media/email contacts by clicking one of the "Social Media Sharing Options" located at the bottom of this page, or by clicking on the word "Share" embedded throughout this website...............In 2015, our grassroots, door-to-door, campaign secured a modest 10,243 votes in the election for sheriff...............In 2019, we dramatically increased our vote total with an impressive 56,780 votes secured against an incumbent sheriff (that's nearly 40% of votes cast)................In 2023, our campaign goal is to reach 50% + 1 vote in the March 21, 2023 Unitary Primary Election with your help.................Please consider supporting our campaign by making a small contribution via the green Donate button on this website. It only takes a few minutes...............Thank you again for the love and support that you have shown our entire campaign team................On March 21, 2023.......Jacksonville.......It's Time For A Change!
