1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)

Answer from Randy Jotte:

My qualifications include exposure to the diversity of needs of our society through my work as an emergency physician and a decade of legislative experience working with the public to achieve sustainable solutions. I am familiar with the problems our society faces and how to arrive at solutions.

Answer from Joan McGivney:

My personal and professional experiences in elected and community service, corporate world, small business owner and as a mother and wife give me a broad background working with others to accomplish goals to help us address the needs facing our district and our state.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

Answer from Joan McGivney:

I will form community committees of business/school leaders and citizens to work on these priorities for our district. The education and business goals overlap because we need quality education so that our future workforce is skilled and knowledgeable, which is a key requirement for the businesses of our state

Answer from Randy Jotte:

Real solutions require all vested interests be included in the discussion and respected. I will bring contrary interests together to reach mutual understanding and results. I will apply this approach, which has worked for me in the past, to make health care, education, and the environment more secure for all.
