Congressional candidates responded to audience member questions at special gathering hosted by Woodland Chamber of Commerce
WOODLAND — Republican incumbent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, and candidate Carolyn Long, spoke in a debate-like style at a special Woodland Chamber of Commerce forum Tuesday afternoon.
The session began with opening statements from the congresswoman, followed by Long. Each candidate presented their platforms for the November general election, as well as attempted to clear up what they believed to be false accusations from each other.
The conclusion of the statements lead into questions from audience members. Topics covered ranged from healthcare, to climate change, as well as homelessness, the carbon tax and President Donald Trump.
Civility was urged by both candidates and Woodland’s moderator, even so, tensions arose when audience members were told to stop stating opinions and reduce the noise level after statements.
