Yulee – Today, Scott Hanna announced his run for Ocean, Highway and Port Authority in District 3. “Our port is a large part of our local economy. We can make it better. As a small business owner and family man in the community, I understand how important it is that we have balance with our growth and environment. As an electrician who gets up and goes to work every day, I also understand how important it is we help the port to be successful to care for families in our community. I believe the Port has an important role to play in that balance. It’s time for the Port to take a more aggressive role in actively solving challenges in our community from doing our part to help protect beach access to championing high-speed internet. I want to be part of that solution. I also promise to be accessible and available. I get calls from people in the community all the time who needs help because they have lost power, or they need help in a pinch. I promise to offer all of you that same availability as your Port Commissioner.”

The Port of Fernandina must listen to the citizens in the community we live in. We need to be engaged with the City of Fernandina Beach and the people who live in Nassau County. As your port commissioner, I will make sure the Port is working for the citizens with transparency. I’m committed to working to build on these relationships and build more trust between the Port and the community.“

Scott is a local business owner an active volunteer in the community. He is married to his wife, Kari and has two beautiful children. To learn more about Scott and his run for Port Authority visit his facebook page by searching “Scott Hanna for Port Authority.”
