I would like to see less traffic and people on their phones. The higher the minimum wage would make it easier to enjoy the nightlife a little more. Less construction and people on the streets with their children when they could be working a job. We have the best people though! the beaches and local restaurants make it worth your wild to come and a tour of DUVALL! Duval is a county that makes up the majority of Jacksonville and you can hear it being chanted in any nighttime event! This is no other county like our own Duval County!

Duval contains Jacksonville which is the largest city in the country by land mass. I have lived here 10 years and I still haven’t explored ever part of the city, but with every new discovery made I find the place in my heart for Duval grows a little more.
I like the communal potential that Duval county posses. I would love to see a change in the violence, and crime rate. I feel as if Duval had a decrease in crime, and a higher will to work towards a loving community I would have a much better living experience here.
