Mayor Alvin Brown welcomed Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus to City Hall on Tuesday. Recently, the Navy released its fiscal year 2013 budget which allocated more ships and sailors to Naval Station Mayport.
“It’s a vote of confidence in our city,” said Mayor Brown. “And it is going to boost the number of personnel in Jacksonville – that’s good for our economy.”
The secretary was greeted in the atrium of City Hall by JROTC cadets from Mandarin High School.
