ROCHESTER, Minn. - Communities United for Rochester Empowerment, also known as CURE, is sharing their issue platform ahead of the 2018 election.
Members gathered outside the Government Center in Rochester, voicing their desire for better healthcare, jobs, transportation, and housing options for all.
Michelle Arends went up to the microphone to share her experience with housing in the city, and said she would like to see more affordable options.
"I think those of us who are under the $35,000 a year are kind of being left out a little bit," Arends said, "and it'd just be nice that when you know you're renting a place you can rent it long-term, not every year having to flip into something different."
Local advocates with CURE said if candidates don't support their issues, they plan to vote them out.
In addition to a push for voter registration, the group is also proposing a $15 an hour minimum wage.
