Democratic candidate Joshua Hicks issued the following statement:

“I couldn’t be more grateful for the community support our campaign continues to receive. For far too long, our current representative has placed his political career, party, and powerful corporate interests in front of people. But our growing momentum and widespread support show that the First Coast community is ready for new leadership. This campaign is about placing people first, by focusing on the kitchen table issues impacting families across our community, and that’s exactly what I will do in Tallahassee.”
