Candidates responded to questions about where they stood on a Marijuana Ordinance, local taxes and fees, property owner rights, federal and state funding, fighting for rural counties in Sacramento, and making Nevada County more business friendly.

The format included a three minute opening statement from each candidate, two minutes to respond to each question, and then a three minute closing statement.

The Tea Party is holding two more debates for other electoral races in March and April.
