We all love this city, but lately we’ve lost sight of what’s truly important – making sure Duluth is the safest, most affordable and opportunity-filled place to raise a family. I’m running for City Council because we need to get serious about refocusing city government on those basics.
Running for office isn’t about me. It would be far easier to stand on the sidelines. But I care about Duluth and want to represent those who are concerned with providing their kids the best future possible.
Effective city government can help develop an environment for job creation by having safer neighborhoods, solid infrastructure and lower taxes. Those are the basics we need to focus on, because Duluth government can only impact Duluth.
