Duluth mayor says he's leaning against running for third term


Duluth Mayor Don Ness said Thursday that a new mayor with a fresh perspective and different skills could be good for the city.

That belief, he said, is weighing into his decision-making about running for a third term in 2015.

“I haven’t made a final decision and I won’t make a final decision until later in the year,” he told the News Tribune. “But I wanted my friends and supporters to understand how I’m approaching the decision.”
