Gubernatorial and OSA candidates answer questions from city officials

The League of Minnesota Cities has now completed a series of webinars with the Office of the Minnesota State Auditor (OSA) candidates Pat Anderson and Rebecca Otto, and with gubernatorial candidates Mark Dayton and Tom Horner. The webinars were designed as online discussions for League members to learn more about where candidates stand on issues affecting city government, like local government aid, unfunded mandates, the state budget deficit, and the state-local fiscal partnership. Despite several requests, candidate Tom Emmer declined to participate in the webinars. In addition to posting recordings and slides from each webinar on its web site, the League has also posted summary articles that highlight comments made by each gubernatorial and OSA candidate.
