LIVE OAK — Frank Davis announced this week that he will be a candidate for mayor of Live Oak.
“I’m running for the office of mayor because I want to represent the City of Live Oak in our next phase of growth and development,” Davis said in his letter of intent to run.
Davis has served as the District 4 city councilman the past four years.
“I’ve enjoyed representing District 4 and the people of Live Oak as city councilman,” Davis said. “I believe the experience and knowledge I gained as councilman would help me in the role of mayor.”
Davis moved to Live Oak in 1978. He previously served as Suwannee County coordinator and zoning director. He also served as pastor/administrator of Melody Christian Church for more than 25 years.
Davis is also a member of the Florida Bar and is a Florida Supreme Court certified family court mediator.
“The mayoral position is very important to our city in several ways,” Davis said in announcing his candidacy. “As an ambassador who represents the city and its interests. As an advocate of ideas and projects that will spur economic growth and jobs. As an overseer of local government functions. As an encourager of the citizens and businesspersons of Live Oak, promoting unity and cooperation among various groups and people. As a representative to the Florida League of Cities, League of Mayors and other associated statewide groups.
“I am looking forward to the campaign and the opportunity of visits with the citizens of Live Oak. Please call me at 386-362-8537 or email at email@example.com with any ideas, suggestions or questions.”
