I’m an independent person not tied into party values partisan political is to divisive and it is rare to find compromise. We need more independents to speak the truth and value practical sense ideas. The role of government is to make civilization work the key word civilization refers to civilized people that value and respect every individual’s situation. The role of a representative is to amplify the message of his constituents and foresee and plan for civilization, I am ready to be your Rep.
I support the fight against gun violence and violent crime however there is already a law on the books that says no killing yet killings still happen. We need to change our approach yes prosecute violent crime but deal with the underlying problems both within the system and also the with the individual. A proactive approach will curb this behavior earlier before its to late, because no one benefits from violence.
I am a believer in the American work ethic and the entrepreneurial spirit. There have been some industries that have been down during the pandemic but some that have been up. I think investing in small and large companies that have a mission to fight infectious airborne diseases is a worthwhile cause.
The system we live in is being affected rapidly by changing technology. It is hard to change but we need to embrace technology when it makes sense. The future we are planning for is not limited by wires, classrooms, and doctors offices. The dynamic situation of change will lead people to learn faster and be connected with specialized facilities from a distance. I think the biggest thing is supporting a situation where all people have a safe place to call home and utilize technology to learn.
In many ways local communities need to get more agrarian through the use of community and personal gardens. There is no reason we can’t produce enough crops to enhance our local situation. The hemp plant for example has many traditional uses including clothing and textiles and modern uses include biodegradable plastics and building materials. Gardens are a sustainable resource that continue to pay dividends if managed properly and less reliance on out sourced food supplies benefits our stabilty.

We want to hear your stories, too. #TellMPRNews what is motivating you to get out and vote this year.

The League of Women Voters of Minnesota, in consultation with MPR News, crafted the questions sent to the candidates in June 2020.

The League of Women Voters of Minnesota reached out to candidates based on contact information in their public candidate filings. Candidates with email addresses were invited and reminded with emails. Candidates with only mailing addresses were sent a letter. Candidates with phone numbers received a phone call as well.

Candidate responses are published as they responded and have not been edited, except when responses were longer than the given character limit. In those cases, the responses are truncated.

Vote411 is brought to you by the League of Women Voters Education Fund and League of Women Voters of Minnesota Education Fund. The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for office.
