Dear Candidate,

Rethos: Places Reimagined invites candidates for the Minnesota Legislature to complete a questionnaire on building rehabilitation, the Main Streets program, and other issues of interest to our members and followers. The questionnaire is nonpartisan, and it is not meant to serve as an endorsement of or for any particular candidate or political party.

The preservation of our built environment typically has been a bipartisan issue. Thousands of voters across Minnesota recognize their communities’ unique assets - both tangible and intangible. Through their acts of stewardship, and by reclaiming and revitalizing valued places, they are growing their local economies, sustaining their ways of life, lowering their carbon impact, and preserving the character of their communities.

Collected responses to this questionnaire will be posted on Rethos' website. We will also use social media to connect candidates’ responses with our members and supporters. Please complete this survey by Monday, October 19, 2020.

If you have questions, please contact our policy director, Erin Hanafin Berg. For more information about Rethos, please visit our webpage, or follow us on Facebook , Instagram, and Twitter.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

Todd Wright
Acting Director, Rethos
