JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Steve Irvine has the campaign signs and a slogan "See the Truth."

But there's one thing about this candidate you won't hear from anyone else: he's not seeking your vote.

"When you meet a voter on the street and you're trying to get their vote, what do you tell them?" questioned First Coast News' Erich Spivey.

"See, that's the problem. I'm not trying to get anybody's vote," Irvine replied. "Say you don't like me. That's OK. Talk to your candidate. We've got to have awareness about these issues."

He said it's time to change the perception that Jacksonville is the murder capital of Florida.

"We want to talk about moving the convention center. We've spent way too much money on those types of programs and nothing back on the people that live here," Irvine said.

Part of Irvine's platform includes funding more education and prevention programs to lower the crime rate, cutting the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office budget to pay for those programs, slowing down spending and cutting payroll.

Irvine operates Yesterdays on Park Street in Jacksonville.
