Pose Your Questions to the District 46 Candidates

Two House races and a Senate race will be on the ballot this November.

With the Nov. 6 election fast approaching, Patch wants to give you the chance to pose a question to the District 46 candidates.

In the Senate District 46 race, incumbent Sen. Ron Latz (DFL) is taking on Republican challenger Paul Scofield.

There are two local House races—in 46A, Democratic incumbent Rep. Ryan Winkler faces Republican John Swanson, and incumbent Rep. Steve Simon (DFL) takes on Republican challenger David Arvidson in 46B.

In the comments below, we welcome you to post your questions. If you'd like to just question one particular candidate, please note that. Otherwise, we'll assume all questions are intended for all the candidates.

Please keep questions civil and respectful. We'll gather some of the best questions we receive and pose them to the candidates. The resulting interviews will run on Patch.

What are your plans, for example, to foster the implementation of the light rail system in the SW metro? What financial incentives do you favor to encourage the establishment of high tech business in your district?

How can you change the conversation in St. Paul to work toward compromise? Are you open to compromise with members of the opposition party? What does compromise look like to you?

How will the legislature pay back the money it owes to the schools? How do you plan to vote on the amendments and why? Is there really much voter fraud? Why shouldn't gay people have the right to get married? In a fair society, shouldn't people who have more money pay more taxes/

Do you believe that Minnesota's constitution should secure rights for all people? Should the constitution be amended when a state statute would do the job?
