About Clay

Clay Yarborough grew up in District 12, is a product of local public schools, and graduated from UNF with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. During college, he worked as a truck loader at UPS and, for the past 12 years, has worked in the company’s Human Resources Department. In his current role, Clay has personally interviewed and hired over 1,800 people into jobs in Jacksonville.

Clay loves our city and served eight years on the Jacksonville City Council, his final year as President of the 19-member body. After serving at the local level, he pursued a seat in the State Legislature, was elected, and currently serves in the Florida House representing Jacksonville’s Southside and Fort Caroline areas. The son of a public educator, Clay’s priorities include making our schools and city as safe as possible, supporting economic growth and development (including for our port), and working on proactive transportation solutions.

Clay and his wife, Jordan, have twin six-year old sons, a three-year-old son, and welcomed their fourth son in January 2019.
