James Moser, write-in candidate for mayor

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The first thing James Moser wants you to know about him is how to properly spell his name.

"It's J-A-M-E-S M-O-S-E-R," he said.

That's what you'll have to know if you're going to vote for him on March 22. He's a write-in for mayor, who said he's a conservative who just wants to help the city he's been in his whole life.

"I'm a native of Jacksonville, I love this city a whole lot."

The Navy veteran has more than 20 years under his belt as a teacher and currently teaches computer science at Mandarin High School.

He wants to make cuts in nearly every line item in the city's budget, and he wants to cut taxes. "If we can handle the budget better and not go overboard in this city, we don't need high taxes and we don't need to raise millage rates," he said.

"We can work within the $1.7 billion budget if we use it wisely."

He said his main priorities are emergency services and schools, which he said would take very few cuts. Everything else, he said, is fair game.

And he wants to kill the garbage tax, JEA surcharge and storm water fees.
