Jacksonville, Florida does not want to fall under Siege by Whitehouse forces, like Portland, Oregon, to allow Donald Trump’s Political Grandstanding.

May 30, 2020. [Bob Self/Times-Union]

Because of a global pandemic, civil unrest, protests, riots, and incompetent leadership on the City, State, and Federal level, it would endanger our families, communities, businesses, and homes to bring Donald Trump and the Republican National Convention to Jacksonville.

After watching Donald Trump forces teargas citizens, and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, we cannot allow our homes to come under Federal Siege by White House Forces.

“Mayor Ted Wheeler was tear-gassed by federal officers along with a large crowd of protesters late Wednesday night after he tried for hours to calm angry activists demanding police reform from City Hall and calling for federal authorities to withdraw”

Jacksonville doesn't want Trump or the RNC!

Because of a Global Pandemic, as well as recent unrest, protests, and riots on the streets of Jacksonville, we do not feel safe to host the Republican National Convention.

These are our homes, business, and communities, not a political stage, and while I understand Florida is a battleground state, Jacksonville has NO DESIRE to become a battleground city.

In the past, conventions have caused riots, protests, crime, and other undesirable elements to be introduced into the community. We DO NOT want this for our homes and businesses.

It is a highly insensitive time to suggest this, and while certain elements may wish to find us in a weakened state to not be able to protect our community, we DO NOT!

We have had added hardships during this coronavirus epidemic, having a naval base, and seaports, adding extra people, into an already particularly vulnerable community is irresponsible and shows no concern for the citizens of Jacksonville, only their vote.

We have no interest in this "politics as normal" approach during this a health as well as community crisis.

We feel at this time, it would be better served for the people of Jacksonville to focus on the welfare of our families and communities as a whole, and while we appreciate the consideration in our city, we would like to respectfully decline, and ask you allow us the time we need to make sure Jacksonville's future is a bright and safe one for its citizens.
