As of March 2014, Ju’Coby Pittman entered the race for a Council seat in Jacksonville, Florida. Now, City Council Candidate Pittman has announced that she will re-designate her electoral representation from City Council District 9 to City Council At-Large, Group 5 (vying for the seat of Robin Lumb) for the March 2015 election.
The impetus for the savvy political switch follows the judicious advice of Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown and various community leaders who have observed her track record. These people believe that she will represent all constituents across the board and everyone concerned will benefit from her strong leadership ability. Ju’Coby Pittman’s philosophy is, “Go out of your comfort zone to make a difference”, and that’s just what Pittman is doing.
Pittman is a native of, and advocate for Jacksonville, with over 30 years of experience working in the public and private sectors of the community.
“I look forward to restructuring my campaign goals to include economic development and revitalization by building upon our community assets, while addressing the critical and urgent issues that matter to the residents of Jacksonville”, stated the 22-year President and CEO of the Clara White Mission.
Pittman's vast experience and leadership has catapulted the award-winning non-profit Mission from a $225,000 operation to its current $3.1 million budget. She has been locally, regionally and nationally recognized for her innovation of job-training, job-creation and veteran housing.
