Jimmy Peluso grew up in Jacksonville and served in the U.S. Navy from 2009 to 2015. He’s worked in government affairs for many years, dealing with water policy for the state at St. Johns River Water Management District. He’s been part of numerous boards, including Northeast Florida Literacy Alliance, Changing Homelessness Continuum of Care Board, Veterans Council of Duval County, and Memorial Park Association. Peluso wants to take aggressive steps in fighting redlining and removing confederate iconography currently displayed in Jacksonville. He strongly feels that current approaches aren’t working and we can’t rely on the same names and faces who have led us to bring about the needed policy changes.
