All- Forum feedback and suggestions: good use of hand signals.  Question spokes could be better organized.  Have forum for each race.  Allow questions directly to specific candidate.  Cut off stack at 2-3 questions, and allow follow up questions not just clarifying questions.  Location was good.  Suggested, 4 forums for April one for each race.
