Local Election Candidate Questionnaire: Call for Ward-Specific Questions!
In preparation for November’s city counselor, mayoral, and park board elections, the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition will be distributing questionnaires to all candidates. Our goal is to make sure our candidates are thinking about bike-related issues here in Minneapolis, to gauge their level of support for biking and walking in Minneapolis, find out their opinions on various projects and street improvements, and to make this information available to voters.
Minneapolis is divided into 13 wards. The map looks like this:
In November, each ward will elect a city counselor to represent them to the City of Minneapolis for the next four years.
We want to make sure that our candidate questionnaire gets to the heart of issues YOU care about. What do you want to know from your city council candidate? Do you have an open-ended question for your candidate about a specific street or project in your neighborhood?
Post your ward specific questions below or email them to (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 25, 2013.
Not sure what ward you live in? Check out http://apps.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/AddressApp/SearchByAddress.aspx?AppID=WardFinderApp to find out.
Thanks and send those questions in soon!
