Candidates for Ashland mayor and council positions one and three were there.
Audience members were asked to group up and write down questions on a note card.
“We wanted to bring the candidates in a different kind of way. Really with a framework of a culture of peace and asking questions that have that kind of valuing behind it,” said Culture of Peace Commission Executive Director David Wick.
The candidates were given one minute each to answer questions which varied, but many focused on the issues of homelessness in Ashland as well as tolerance of diversity.
