Guest Writer: My vote for Mayor and why.

Eye recently gave an opportunity to use our platform for anyone who wished to explain why they were voting for their candidate for Mayor. We reached out to all candidates and suggested they have someone write about them. We wanted to be fair and give everyone a chance. Jimmy Hill’s supporters were the ONLY ones to respond. That’s interesting and we hope the other candidates will take heed of opportunities to be heard by followers of Eye. Can’t hurt to be heard.

My name is Derby Ulloa and I was born in pre-Communist Cuba and left there in 1960 at age 15. I have been vocal about anti-Communism throughout my life and more so upon retiring after 38 years as an Art Professor. I have given to my community and many of you may know my work displayed on the River known as the River Runners…life size bronze sculptures. I love my community and I deeply love America.

I’m supporting Jimmy Hill for Mayor and here are my reasons:

Upcoming Presidential Election in 2020: In Jacksonville we have 4 choices for Mayor in the upcoming election, JIMMY HILL, Allen, Brosche, and Curry. The question is: What did Allen, Brosche and Curry do to help elect Pres. Trump in 2016 or Gov. DeSantis or Sen. Scott in 2018? The answer is NOTHING.  And that is exactly what they will do in 2020. Northeast Florida is essential to keep Florida RED. If Jacksonville goes BLUE, the State of Florida will do the same and so will the country. We cannot afford another four or eight years of leftist (COMMUNIST) policies which will be the destruction of our great Christian Nation. Florida has the third largest number of electoral votes which are needed to win a Presidential election. JIMMY HILL, as Jacksonville Mayor will help us do that.

When candidate Trump held a rally at the Jacksonville Landing in 2016, there was no Mayor Curry to welcome him. Curry was supporting either Bush or Rubio. When candidates DeSantis and Nunez or Ann Scott came to town, there was no Curry or Brosche to welcome them either. I know because I was there. However, JIMMY HILLL was there. JIMMY HILL has also attended and spoke at the recently created TRUMP CLUB events. I never saw Brosche or Curry there.

Double-speak by Anna Brosche and Lenny Curry: Anna Lopez Brosche is really a liberal Democrat who voted for the HRO and wants to take down our Confederate Memorials which I find is anti-American. She now talks about conducting an audit of the City budget, but did not even mention it during her tenure as City Council President. She was quick to condemn White Nationalists, but said NOTHING against Antifa or Black Lives Matter.

Current Mayor Lenny Curry took campaign money from the same donors who elected Democrat Alvin Brown and broke his campaign promise to conservatives to oppose the HRO. He is now in the pocket of Jaguars owner Shahid Khan who is on his way to own or control most of downtown Jacksonville. Shad Khan doesn’t sit well with me because he never properly apologized for the actions of the knee-taking Jaguars players in London. The only reason we got any apology is our boycott hurt the NFL. I find this very disturbing that Mayor Curry is so beholding to Shad Khan.

Because of the behaviors of Anna Brosche and Lenny Curry, I find I do not trust them to hold the reigns of my community. I trust Jimmy Hill and I’m voting for him. I hope you will too.

Thank you to Eye on Jacksonville for allowing me this platform to express my thoughts on this important race.
