Reflecting on Leadership and Vision: A Debate Moderation at the West Palm Beach Meeting

Opening Statement

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome! It’s truly said that the real power belongs to the people who show up. Thank you for dedicating your time to join us today. Our primary battle is not amongst ourselves, but against the complacency in Washington D.C. The candidates here today, Andrew Gutman and Dan Franzese, have bravely stepped forward to be the voices of our community in the nation's capital. As active participants in our Republic, it is our responsibility to support and encourage them as they endeavor to enact meaningful change.

Congressional Questions

1. Restoring Power to the People: Both candidates were asked, "How will you give our Republic and our government back to the people?" Each shared their strategies and past initiatives demonstrating their commitment to this cause.

2. Bridging Voter Divides: In a political landscape marked by division, candidates outlined their approaches to win over Republicans, Democrats, and No Party Affiliation (NPA) voters. This insight was crucial in understanding how they plan to unify diverse voter groups.

3. Constitutional Commitments: A highlight of the debate was hearing each candidate discuss their favorite part of the Constitution and why it resonates with them personally, offering a deeper glimpse into their foundational beliefs and values.

4. Addressing Underrepresentation: Candidates reflected on which group they believe is the most underrepresented in our Republic, providing their perspectives on how to advocate for these communities effectively.

5. Admiring Opponents: In a refreshing turn, each candidate shared admirable traits about their opponent, fostering a spirit of respect and collegiality that is often missing in political discourse.

Closing Remarks

I want to extend a heartfelt congratulations to the candidates and express my gratitude to everyone who participated in making this event a success. Today was not just about debate; it was a reaffirmation of our commitment to dialogue, democracy, and the betterment of our community.


Moderating today’s debate was an honor. It reinforced my belief in constructive political discussions and the power of community engagement. As we move forward, let us remember that our unity and informed action are the keys to shaping a government that truly reflects and serves its people.
