Apopka voters have destroyed a national trend of incumbents in municipal elections winning between 88% to 93% of the contests they compete in against challengers to their seat. Consequently, Apopka has unofficially gone from a City Council with the most experience in the state, to possibly the least.So is Apopka simply voting incumbents out of office without other factors? Or are there issues that drove this election in a specific direction?It could well be that there are core issues that persuaded voters to make another course correction in a post-Land Apopka and not simply a dislike for candidates they voted in favor of the previous term.It’s a mystery that needs to be solved.Today, The Apopka Voice will begin the search for answers and not theories on understanding the 2018 election.
