Last Monday, Oct. 23, Minnesota State House and Senate election candidates for District 9B met at The Madison in Detroit Lakes for a candidate forum focusing exclusively on senior issues.


In attendance were State Rep. Paul Marquart, Sen. Keith Langseth and Paul Holle, Langseth's challenger. Long-term care insurance was the focus of the discussion, with all three candidates in agreement that it is an increasing need for the "baby boomer" generation, now approaching retirement age.
