On November 3, 2020 Minnesota will hold elections for ALL seats in the Minnesota State Senate and the Minnesota State House of Representatives.

City of Skate sent a Questionnaire to candidates to inform them and to allow for them to communicate their view on skateboarding, skateparks and their support of the MN State Skate Park Grant* matching program.

*NOTE – After the questionnaire and the candidate responses, the MN State Skate Park Grant matching program was voted into the 2020 MN Bonding Bill signed by Gov. Walz on Weds. 10/21. We hope this initial program will be fully funded and supported in the years ahead by our Minnesota elected officials.

Please review the responses from your Senate and House candidates to gauge their support for quality public skateparks in your communities and throughout Minnesota.
All MN candidates were given the opportunity to participate in this City of Skate candidate questionnaire. As a non profit City of Skate does not endorse candidates.

Please vote TODAY or on Nov. 3rd, and continue to encourage your MN state and local public representatives to support Minnesota skateboarding.
