The crowd heard from City Council candidates Steve Haag, Johnny Loveless, Joshua Price, Erik Richardson, and Larry Webber.

School Board candidates Dusty Blue, Jessica Johnson Ekern, Mathew Pilger, Michelle Stephens, Kelli Teel and Todd Yager.  Candidates Jennifer Gore and Kara Clovis addressed the crowd before questioning began, sharing why they were each withdrawing from the race.
