Seven Washington, D.C. mayoral candidates, hoping to win the democratic nomination on April 1, took a seat in front of an audience of more than 200 people—many standing—at the Dumbarton House on Jan. 9. 

The debate, sponsored by the Georgetown Business Association and the Citizens Association of Georgetown, was at times serious, but punctuated by a vocal audience, some light-hearted questions and a surprise participant.

Moderator Davis Kennedy, editor and publisher of The Current Newspapers, asked candidates a series of questions about minimum wage, affordable housing, taxes and the D.C. school system. And a very Georgetown-heavy question: "What should be done with the Whitehurst Freeway?"
