2022 Candidate Survey
Describe your personal experience with skateboarding.
I longboard and bmx bike, though I haven't skateboarded in a few years... I have bombed hills on longboards and bikes going over 30 mph. My general perception of skateboarding is exceptional. I can also do tricks.
Can you do a kick flip?
Do the communities you would represent have quality, accessible, visible skateboarding spaces?
No. They dont. The nearby city of St Cloud does, but that is not in my district.
Do you see the connection between skateboarding and social, racial, gender, and economic equity? If so, please share a few thoughts.
I see skateboarding as a great activity that connects people of every social, racial, gender, and economic equity background. It's super fun and creates a level playing ground for every person to compete and show off.
How will you support youth and community health with new ideas and infrastructure?
I will meet with the parks and recreation department to construct quality, accessible, visible skateboarding spaces, with state sponsored funds.
Will you support fully funding the Minnesota Skate Park Grant Program (SF2502/HF2876) in the 2023 Legislative session and beyond?
