Past citizen blog – Mayoral Election of Pompano Beach

Current Mayor Lamar Fisher and myself.

For a class assignment, each student was assigned to cover a different electoral race. Many students covered Trump vs Clinton, Rubio vs Murphy, Wasserman Schultz vs Conova, and others focused more locally.

I was assigned to cover the Mayoral Electoral race of Pompano Beach. Which allowed me to research each candidate, attend Pompano Beach events, and even allowed me to interview (either in person or by phone) each candidate.

I have met with and/or interviewed current Mayor Lamar Fisher, opponents David Baumwald and Patrick Jovanov. I covered the electoral race until the results of the Nov. 8 election was released.

I feel that this allowed me to receive a better understanding on how local government works, pertaining to the election cycle.
