Gregory Cheadle, Lewis Elbinger, Audrey Denny, Jessica Holcombe, David Peterson, and Marty Walters were the six candidates present .Questions addressed a range of issues including the Second Amendment, Campaign Finance Reform, how to bring people together, along with a number others. Because of the large number of candidates, only nine questions could be addressed in the two hour time period. Moderator Steven Munkelt was impressed with the group of four Democrats, one Republican, and one Green Party member.
