[SEE VIDEO] The first debate of the Palm Beach Town Council election season had a packed house to hear Mayor Gail Coniglio (unopposed), Bill Diamond (Incumbent) vs. Danielle Moore, and Michael Pucillo (Incumbent) vs. Michael Scharf.

The debate was held on Monday, January 12, 2015 at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. Over 300 attended the public event. The audience submitted questions and former WPTV5 anchor Jim Sackett chose the questions and moderated the debate.

A wide range of topics were debated: shore protection, planning and zoning, preservation, Palm Beach’s small town character, commercial and residential development, undergrounding, taxes, Port of Palm Beach inlet deepening and widening, future population growth, and more.

The Civic Association Season Partner, First Republic Bank, sponsored the event.
