Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom  But unlike most debates or townhalls, this event will attempt to re-create the experience of being on the Apopka City Council. The agenda items (topics) and specifics (questions) will be sent to the eight candidates a week in advance so that they can prepare to answer questions delivered to them. This style of Townhall is intended to better simulate the experience of being an Apopka City Commissioner. There will also be longer answers, allowing candidates to reply to questions in a more conversational style, similar to how the City Council operates during a discussion. Three specific topics will be discussed with only a few questions per topic. The discussion will stay on that topic until a comprehensive understanding of the four candidate’s viewpoints/opinions/thoughts is known. The purpose of this format is not to measure how quickly a candidate thinks on their feet, but rather to measure their approach to solving critical issues for Apopka, and to fully understand their opinions and ideologies on the subject.In the last 30 minutes, a more traditional townhall style debate will close the event with the candidates answering questions posed by the audience. Seating is limited to first-come-first-served.
