Alvin Brown's new gig
Former Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown had committed to taking six months off from work after losing his reelection campaign to Lenny Curry last May. Now he's lined up his first foray back into the work world - as a fellow for the Spring 2016 semester at Georgetown University Institute of Politics and Public Service.
"I'm excited for this opportunity to share what I've learned about leadership and governing, and also to learn more about the issues driving some of our nation's brightest young minds on a career path toward public service," Brown said in a statement. "During my time as mayor, I felt blessed with the responsibility to touch people's lives and create meaningful partnerships to do public good. If there is one point I hope students come away with, it's that public service is a highly noble endeavor built upon vision, teamwork, perseverance and gratitude."
