All candidates were invited to participate in the event, which was held at the Black Pearl on the Columbia in Washougal. Six of the 10 candidates vying for the three seats on the council participated in the forum, offering statements of their candidacy to those in attendance. The candidates also answered questions and were given an opportunity to provide a rebuttal to the comments of their fellow candidate.
