BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – “Mayor” Ulysses will join Palm Bay Mayor William Capote on Thursday to learn what it takes to manage Brevard County’s largest city.
As a fourth grade student at Riviera Elementary last year, a class project about city government prompted him and four other student to deliver speeches stating why they would be the best candidate for mayor.
His classmates voted and chose Ulysses as the best man for the job. Voters said they found him to be someone who is honest and willing to work together to get the job done.
As part of the project, Mayor Capote offered Ulysses an opportunity to shadow him for the day and see how things are really done.
Capote will spend Thursday showing Ulysses around, introducing him to some of the city staff and helping him get an idea of all that goes into the role.
To cap off the experience, Ulysses will deliver his election winning speech at Thursday’s City Council Meeting.
