In this interview White Rose Magazine’s Executive Editor Hap Aziz interviews Mayor Bryan Nelson of Apopka, Florida, hearing the mayor’s thoughts, concerns, and ideas regarding running a healthy small town. In this day and age, more and more communities in the U.S. are getting caught up in sometimes violent, destructive, and even deadly conflict and unrest.

Mayor Nelson speaks to the need of maintaining open lines of communications and accessibility with the community, building good relationships between the citizens and the public servants, and the challenges of governing in an environment often corrupted by the tides of social media.
