Last month Alvin Brown made history by becoming the 1st African American Mayor on Jacksonville, Florida…

Today he named his transition team, and I must say he is surrounding himself with some good people.  Of course I knew Audrey Moran was going to be in the mix, but Mike Weinstein, Nat Glover, Matt Carlucci, Bob Rhodes……

This city may just be on the verge of something……     Here is the complete list:

Peter Rummell (A prominent Republican who surprised many by supporting Brown, a Democrat)
Rev. Henry Rhim (Brown’s pastor)
