Long-time businessman and former City Council member Matt Carlucci filed June 22 to run for Jacksonville City Council At-Large, Group 4.

Carlucci, a 36-year State Farm insurance agent, previously served three terms on the Jacksonville City Council. During his time on the council, he served as Council President and twice as finance chair. Carlucci also served five years on the Florida Commission on Ethics, one year as chairman. Active in community affairs, he has served on numerous community not-for-profit boards and committees.

“Our campaign is about all of Jacksonville,” said Carlucci, a San Marco resident. “It’s time to create new opportunities for citizens in every neighborhood and community.”

The City Council At-Large, Group 4 seat is currently held by Greg Anderson of Ortega, who is leaving due to term limits. His second four-year term expires June 30, 2019.

Carlucci indicated the City’s highest priority must be public safety.

“We must be strongly committed to prevention, intervention, and supporting the enforcement of law. It is critical that we put an end to the fear of an unsafe city. We must stop the loss of lives, and give hope to a generation of at risk youth,” he said. “This campaign is about city first, being family focused and keeping an eye on the long game, it’s about Jacksonville’s future.”
