Governor candidates’ forum: Watch the video

The Center, along with the Minnesota Newspaper Association and Compeer Financial, hosted its first gubernatorial candidates’ forum on January 26 during MNA’s annual convention. Our moderator Mary Lahammer led the candidates in one-on-one conversations about just rural issues, ranging from workforce and housing to broadband and water. All nine candidates participated, giving the 150 or so reporters, editors and publishers in the room a chance to hear the candidates’ thoughts on rural issues and take that information back to their readers all over the state.
