Greetings! My name is Eugene Ford III, I am a graduate of Paxon School for Advanced Studies and University of Florida with a Bachelor’s of Science in Agricultural Operations Management with a focus in Construction Planning. I’ll be transparent in saying that I don’t have a large dose of belief in the political and policy making system as it stands in the United States, however with the little bit I do have I helped with a campaign for the same office I'm running for because in the 2 years from that person running for office and holding the position, I saw tangible change. 

As the title suggests, the Duval Soil and Water Conservation District (or board) influences decisions pertaining to actions that would impact the land (food deserts, planting trees, farming) and water (St. Johns River, Jacksonville Beaches, etc) in Jacksonville. Those two resources are directly connected to our livelihood as human beings yet the Duval Soil & Water Conservation board is an unpaid and not very well understood or respected position. 

We are literally and figuratively the "grass roots" of policy making because our involvement is primarily providing education and resources to the people while being a present to stymie potentially environmentally harmful decisions that come from the Mayors office, City Council, or Corporations.

My goal is to deepen the roots and increase the resources and autonomy that our board has to be a force for good in this county. We can "save the planet" starting with the people on it by positively affecting areas such as food sovereignty, job security, and crime. 

Some of this "save the planet" rhetoric may sound cliché and euphemistic but as you get to know me more you will see that I am the “anti-politician” in the sense that I will not change my core essence in order to earn your vote or your donation, it will be because of my differences from the norm that I hope to achieve your trust, because we deserve radical changes that benefit all.

Vote for me on November 8th, this is only the beginning of my disruption to the powers that be. 

Power to the People! Gene For The Peeps!
