Children’s Inauguration Planned for Jacksonville’s Youngest Citizens

Jacksonville, Fla. – Even though they are not old enough to vote yet, the children of Jacksonville won’t be left out of the excitement surrounding the inauguration of Mayor-Elect Alvin Brown. They have the chance to take part in a special inauguration planned just for them.

The Children’s Inauguration will take place Thursday, June 30 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Hemming Plaza in downtown Jacksonville. This event is open to the public and is for children of all ages.

The mayor-elect’s sons, Joshua and Jordan, will take part in a mock swearing-in and then Mayor-Elect Brown will speak about the importance of civic engagement and voting. The honorable Virginia Norton, Circuit Court Judge, will participate in this historic event.

“This event is designed to get the children of Jacksonville interested in government and public affairs,” said committee chair Robin Rukab. “The inauguration of Mayor-Elect Alvin Brown is a historic event in Jacksonville and we want to take this opportunity to engage kids so that when they do turn 18, they’ll register to vote.”

The event will also include three separate tours of City Hall, the Main Library and the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville (MOCA).
