Nine candidates hope to win the seat left open on the Burnsville City Council after Charlie Crichton's demise. The election is about a month and a half away. We asked the candidates to fill out a form with a few simple questions to introduce themselves to Patch and the community:
1. Name and age
3. How long have you lived in Burnsville?
4. Why did you decide to run for council?
5. In your opinion what are the weaknesses and strengths of the city?
6. Once elected what do you hope to change?
Each submitted their answers. We provide them here, arranged in alphabetical order. For more coverage on this election, go to or
