College union to host five gubernatorial candidates

Five candidates for governor are scheduled to discuss higher education issues Friday in Roseville.

The candidates, representing three political parties, will speak individually to the Inter Faculty Organization Delegate Assembly. An IFO media advisory lists the participants as Tom Horner of the Independence Party (2:45 p.m.), Republican Marty Seifert (3:00 p.m.) and DFLers Tom Rukavina (3:15 p.m.), John Marty (3:30 p.m.) and Mark Dayton (3:45 p.m.). The event is at the Radisson Roseville.

The advisory says each candidate will give their positions on issues related to higher education and state finances, and then answer audience questions.

The IFO union represents 3,800 faculty members at Minnesota’s seven state universities.
