The Apopka Voice Reader Poll
Decision Apopka 2018
On Sunday, December 3rd, Apopka’s municipal elections will be 100 days away. If this were a horse race, we would be at that curve in the track where the stretch run becomes visible.
And 100 days will go fast.
It’s been a long, plodding, mostly quiet campaign cycle thus far that started a year before Election Day. In that period, most of the candidates have organized their campaign staffs, raised money, created a plan, and kept a low profile. Some have been at it for quite awhile, others just recently entered, and one is still waiting for an opponent.
But one thing is for certain… the quiet campaigns of 2017 will transition into a 2018 model will lead to a much higher visibility in the community.
Very soon, Apopka can expect to see display advertising, bumper stickers, yard signs, and knocks on their doors from these candidates hoping to occupy seats on the City Council.
The names Kilsheimer, Nelson, Velazquez, Kidd, Knight, Mott, and Smith will be abundantly more visible as the candidates for Apopka Mayor, and City Commission Seats #1 and #2 begin to roll out their messages on how they would lead Apopka.
The Apopka Voice has promised to keep its readers, and the voters of Apopka informed on this historic election, and this is the first step.
Where do these races stand?
The Apopka Voice Reader Poll is the first of the campaign season. It was published at noon on Friday, December 1st, and closes at noon on Monday, December 4th, at which time we will publish its results.
This is not a scientific poll. The margin of error is unknown, but it should reflect a snapshot of where our readers stand, with approximately 100 days to go before Election Day. So vote for the candidates you think will best lead this community into its promising future, and have a great weekend Apopka.
Editor’s Note: Commissioner Diane Velazquez is up for re-election for Seat #2 in 2018, but at the time of publication does not have an opponent. Therefore the Seat #2 election is not up for polling.
Editor’s Note: The polling system used by The Apopka Voice will accept only one vote per IP address.
