An Advocate for Our Community
Frances Povloski is an active member of the Jacksonville Beach community. Currently serving as the Vice-Chair of the JB Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and recent graduate of the JB Citizens Police Academy (CPA), she has shown her care for the community through actions and service. With the knowledge gained by serving two terms on the CRA and the experience of CPA, Frances is looking to be a more effective advocate for the city and citizens of Jacksonville Beach.
Continuation of education and industry standards are a must in her profession, and she embraces the idea that complex issues may require additional knowledge. She is running on the ideals that all things should be looked at by reviewing the past and visualizing the future. She believes there can be balance between growth and community living.
As a graduate from Fletcher High School and a business owner in our JB Downtown district, Frances is no stranger to the changes already made at the beaches. It is her hope to make sure three things are addressed when considering the future planning of our community.
1. Does it support local business development?
2. Will our locals enjoy it more or as much as our tourists?
3. What was the original intent, and is it realistic today?
Being a resident, proud mother of two at Fletcher High school and local business owner makes her uniquely qualified to see the full picture of what is missing and what could be explored to make our beach community vibrant, all the while keeping a small-town beach village feel.
