Jo Neeson Bio
I’m Jo Neeson, a multi-generational Jensen Beach resident with a lifelong passion for helping people, the environment, and our beloved Martin County lifestyle. I am also a proud American Veteran.
In my early years, I attended elementary school in Illinois before returning to Martin County. Having attended Murray Middle School, Martin County High, and Indian River Community College, my educational foundation is right here, in Martin County.
To further my passions after college, I joined the US Air Force as an air evacuation medic. After the Air Force, I furthered my education at Bethania School of Vocational Nursing and remained in Texas, as a hospice respiratory nurse in the home health industry.
After 17-years as a nurse, I returned home to Jensen Beach, and have owned, started and managed a variety of local businesses. Health issues that ensued forced me into an early yet temporary retirement.
My commitment and passion for helping others continued with a variety of local causes including:
Big Brother/ Big Sisters on the fundraising committee
One of the original River Warriors
A founding member of
A founder of Tent City Helpers a local homeless assistance organization
Jensen Beach Christian Church food pantry
Top Five Priorities
Clean water. As an environmental activist, I’ve studied this issue extensively and traveled to every Senate subcommittee meeting in Tallahassee, having participated in SFWMD meetings WRAC meetings and a variety of science-based classes and seminars.
Smart growth. This cannot be accomplished without concentrating on infrastructure. Our water treatment plants are antiquated, we have NO real solution to the disposal of biosolids. Our roads and bridges cannot accommodate the sheer volume of traffic that already exists.
Education. School safety and supporting our teachers have got to be at the forefront of any conversation.
The homeless. Having been very active in this conversation I feel like the current and past administrations have done very little to address this issue.
Diversity. We can’t move forward with careful, controlled growth without addressing our entire community in the conversation. I will work to support the underrepresented members of Martin County.
I’ve spent most of my life helping and supporting Martin County’s most important issues.
As County Commissioner for District 1, I will be able to continue that mission and make sure that we get it right!
To do that, I need your support. Please donate to my campaign fund. Your support is not only extremely important right now, but it is also very much appreciated!
