The Star Tribune has invited Minneapolis’ 35 mayoral candidates to participate in its election guide, asking them to provide information about themselves ahead of the Nov. 5 city elections.

They were asked about their ideas to grow jobs and population, reduce crime and lower property taxes, and about their positions on the Minnesota Vikings stadium package, streetcars and mayoral appointment of school board members.

Note: Responses were submitted by the candidates and edited for length, style and taste. If a candidate did not have a website, their e-mail was listed as a contact. Five candidates did not respond: James Everett, Cyd Gorman, Mike Gould, Joshua Rea and James "Jimmy" L. Stroud, Jr.
