In Jenkins own words
I am a proven fighter whose past experience fits the situation we face regarding the school board and education. Your vote for School Board District 3 has never been more important than it is now.
In order to have improved economic growth and good neighborhoods, we must improve our schools. To achieve greatness as a city, we must elect people to the school board who will implement the critical, necessary changes that our students need and deserve.
I have the proven skill set to make this happen. My years as a community leader and city council member have prepared me to take on this role. I will dedicate the time, talent and leadership needed to take our school system to the next level.
I graduated from Englewood High School in 1974, my husband graduated from Wolfson High School in 1969. Our 3 children attended Jacksonville public schools.
Our commitment to public education is clear: We invested in our children, now let me invest in yours. I would like the opportunity to represent District 3 voters on the Duval County School Board. Jacksonville is one school district away from being a great city.
