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.
