Office Of Mayor Lenny Curry
Building a Stronger and More Vibrant Community
On July 15, Mayor Lenny Curry presented his sixth budget to the Jacksonville City Council via a Zoom Conference call.
Operation Save Our Sons
Last week, I stopped by the Hyatt in downtown Jacksonville to speak with a room full of promising young men, to encourage them to invest in themselves and their futures.
Educating Youth About the Dangers of Vaping
Today, I stood with City Councilman Ron Salem, Daily's CEO Aubrey Edge and other community leaders to announce a new effort to address a serious issue facing our city’s youth.
Looking Back on 2018
“Four years will be gone in the blink of an eye.” That was a line in the inaugural address I delivered over three years ago.
The Holiday Spirit
As an annual tradition, my family and I volunteer and hand out gifts at the Children’s Christmas Party of Jacksonville.
Our Kids Are Counting On Us
It was a little over a year ago when I joined City Council members in a classroom to sign legislation creating the
Kids Hope Alliance
(KHA). I still remember the sign over the whiteboard that read, “
No Slacking Any Time
Fourth Consecutive Budget, Unanimously Approved
Last Tuesday, my fourth budget was unanimously approved by my colleagues on City Council.
Celebrating Youth at Work
This summer, more than 400 young men and women in our city were afforded the opportunity to gain skills and experiences to prepare them to pursue their dreams.
THE PLAYERS Championship Charity Day
Friday brought good news to youth-serving organizations throughout Jacksonville.
Summer Night Fun Offered at City Parks
Summer is fast approaching, and my family is counting down the days.
Prescription for Reading
The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are some of the most important.
Jacksonville at the Forefront of Medical Innovation
Earlier this month, I was honored to witness the amazing heights modern technology has reached. I am inspired by the bright future that lies ahead for the City of Jacksonville due to the innovation and leadership taking place within our community.
Protecting our Children
Every morning, I watch my kids enter the school yard. When they do, I feel a sense of safety and security because I know they are in the care of adults I trust to teach and care for them.
Work Hard, Do Well, Give Back
Last week, I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with the “Steiners” – a group of promising students from the University of North Florida.
Empowering the Next Generation of Leaders
Last week, I joined the Jacksonville University community to announce the Master in Public Policy Minority Fellowship program, and it was an honor to be included in a monumental moment that will benefit the City of Jacksonville in the many years to come.
Recognizing Foster Families
As the old adage says, “it takes a village to raise a child.” I’m appreciative of Jacksonville heroes who open their homes and their hearts to children in need.
Getting to the heart of the matter
Too many kids in Jacksonville are facing hopelessness. In the past two and a half years,
I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with some incredible young people
. But some of these same kids have faced unfathomable hardship; they have dealt with a friend being shot, seen a parent incarcerated, or struggled with homelessness.
Strengthening the legacy of Kooker Park
Kooker Park has a long history in Jacksonville’s historic Eastside community, and one man is a big reason why.
Real Subject Matter Experts
Some of the most valuable insights I receive happen when I get out of my office and meet people face-to-face. That’s how I can learn about citizens’ daily lives and challenges.
No Slacking Any Time
There was a sign on the wall, just above the whiteboard, in the classroom at Daniel Academy where I signed the Kids Hope Alliance (KHA) legislation into law. It read, “No Slacking Any Time.”
What pets can teach our children
During the long campaign for mayor, I promised the kids that we could get a dog. I won, and so did they.
Back-To-School Is Here!
It’s back-to-school time in the Curry household. A lot changes when the school bell rings, signaling the start of a new year.
Inspiring Big Dreams
When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be an NFL linebacker. It was a dream many would describe as wild, but my parents always supported and encouraged me. Jacksonville should be doing the same to help our kids in our city reach for their dreams.
Earlier this month, I met a future leader in our community. Her name is Alexandria Andrade, and she’s a rising 5th grader at Sallye Mathis Elementary School.
Another Year of Winning
Having been a CPA, I’ve long known that budgets are about priorities. You can tell a lot about what an organization cares about by how it allocates resources.
No victory laps
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I occasionally share motivational quotes. One of my favorites is from Tony Robbins: “The path to success is to take massive determined action.”
Supporting our youth through mentoring
Growing up can be tough. As the parent of three school-age kids, I know. It helps having someone who believes in you, motivates you, and keeps you focused on the path to success.
