RIP to one of the best Mayors Jacksonville ever had….  Ed Austin.  

Ed died Saturday at the age of 84 and he served as Mayor from 1991-1995.   Before that he was the State Attorney 

During his tenure as Mayor, Ed initiated so many things….. 

The River City Renaissance Plan, rebuilding the Florida Theatre, Ritz Theatre and the current EverBank Stadium.  

Please know that he is also one of the reasons we play NFL football in Jacksonville today.
