Republican candidates for the legislature in the Burnsville, Eagan and Apple Valley area were noticibly absent during a discussion of transportation issues along the I-35 corridor. The forum put on by the I-35W Solutions Alliance invited legislative candidates from both the DFL and Republican parties to talk about transportation issues. Attending were Senator Jim Carlson (DFL-District 38), Representative Sandra Masin (DFL-District 38A), Representative Mike Obermueller (DFL-District 38B), Mike Germain (DFL) candidate for Senate district 37 and Derrick Lindstrom (DFL) candidate for House district 37A.
An earlier forum focused on legislative candidates from the Farmington-Lakeville area was attended by Republicans and Democrats. We’ll be posting that here soon.
