2022 Candidate Survey

Describe your personal experience with skateboarding.

I never got into skateboarding or spent much time with skaters.

Can you do a kick flip?


Do the communities you would represent have quality, accessible, visible skateboarding spaces?

Shoreview recently built a beautiful skate park nearby that is open to the public. I do not know of any parks to the west of my district.

Do you see the connection between skateboarding and social, racial, gender, and economic equity? If so, please share a few thoughts.


How will you support youth and community health with new ideas and infrastructure?

I think skate parks are a great option for parks that have limited space and high demand. I support just about any program that gets people outside and interacting with friends and neighbors!

Will you support fully funding the Minnesota Skate Park Grant Program (SF2502/HF2876) in the 2023 Legislative session and beyond?

I would have to evaluate the program before pledging full support, but I do support continued improvements to our state and local parks.
