Getting uncomfortable with Charlotte mayor hopefuls

It was a little uncomfortable. But as Charlotte’s top mayoral candidates struggled to match up their notes on a vision for the city with the stream of pictures running across the screen, it gave us a slightly less polished view on what type of leader they would be.

That was the scene Tuesday night at nearly full McGlohon Theatre in Spirit Square during a forum hosted by WTF We Vote and the Axios Charlotte. It was conducted Pecha Kucha style, meaning each candidate was required to speak for 20 seconds on each of 20 slides they had selected. The format was invented in Japan more than a decade ago and has spread across the globe.
