(Jax Daily Record) The most important issue facing Duval County is crime and residents are divided on removing the city’s Confederate monuments and the job performance of Mayor Lenny Curry, according to a University of North Florida Public Research Lab Poll released Feb. 28.
At 37%, crime led responses to the question of what is the most important problem facing Jacksonville, followed by education, the economy and housing costs, each with 12%.
Those concerns were followed by race relations, 8%; improving the Downtown area, 6%; and improving transportation and infrastructure, 4%.
When asked about removing all Confederate monuments from public spaces, 51% said they oppose the removal, either strongly or somewhat, with 45% strongly or somewhat supporting removal.
