Nice to meet you

My name is Joey Marchy and I've lived in the Springfield neighborhood for 16 years. Since 2000 I've seen the neighborhood change in many positive ways. I think we still have a lot of room to grow as a community and I'd like to serve on the board to help us grow and learn new things along the way.

I've always been interested in community building and making Jacksonville a better place. My approach to improving the city is to start by improving our neighborhoods.

My vision for Springfield is to become a model for neighborhoods all over Jacksonville and be seen as a progressive community who embraces diversity, walkability, bikeability, affordable housing, art, culture, smart transportation and smart development.

My background is in technology, leadership, community building customer experience and innovation.


 I want to build a community not just serve on a board so I can hear myself talk.
— Joey Marchy

As a board member I will bring:

A unique set of skills and approach problems from different perspectives. I will ask a lot of questions and collaborate with other board members. There are many possible solutions to a problem. I will experiment with different ones and try to learn from each.

MY UNIQUE SKILLS:

Here is a list of my best characteristics - empathetic, caring, honest, brutally transparent, strong work ethic, passionate, patient, clear communicator, problem solver, listener, loyal, ability to read people, endlessly positive, persuasive, tenacious.
