Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks in April 2022 before signing the Individual Freedom bill, which he called the "Stop WOKE Act."

Today’s Media Roundtable discussed some of the top stories on the First Coast, including:

  • As students return to school and school board elections approach, some teachers and parents say they are concerned about new laws including the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” and “Stop WOKE” Act.
  • T.K. Waters, the only Republican running for Jacksonville Sheriff, faces questions about his residency in Duval County. Waters says he ‘inadvertently’ failed up updated his voter registration information after it was discovered that he is registered to vote in Nocatee despite not living there. This is the latest in a string of residency investigations, following former Sheriff Mike William’s resignation after moving out of Duval County.
  • A poll released earlier this week shows Waters and Democrat Lakesha Burton running in a tie for the office of Jacksonville Sheriff. The election is in a few days.
