It was the talk of afternoon school pick up with a group of moms near Riverdale Elementary in Germantown.
Right now now, the city’s current mayor Mike Palazzolo narrowly takes the lead head Alderman John Barzizza.
Germantown resident Anna Underwood said they were discussing why this race in particular seemed so heated and hot buttoned.
"And it’s, of course, social media," said Underwood.
She referred to the number one issue right now in Germantown, which is the addition of new apartments to the city.
Recently, Mayor Palazzolo approved projects that include about 1,200 more apartments.
"It seemed like people wanted to decide that one candidate is pro apartments [and] the other was not," said Underwood.
