A second forum for city council candidates was hosted by the League of Women Voters of Missoula and Missoula Neighborhoods on Wednesday night.

The second of three, it focused on Ward 4 candidates Mike Nugent and Alan Ault and Ward 3 candidates Daniel Carlino and Dori Gilels.

The four candidates answered a variety of submitted questions, including some about housing, COVID and leadership skills. Each was given an opening and closing statement and there were no candidate-specific questions asked.

Carlino, Gilels and Nugent are endorsed by the Missoula County Democrats. Ault told the Missoulian earlier this year he leans toward Republican values and would take an endorsement for the party.

Missoula’s housing shortage has been one of the major topics of the 2021 election season, and significant time was spent on it during Wednesday’s forum. Candidates were asked what they feel is the reason.

Nugent responded that it is due to several issues, including supply and demand.
