More than 500 Duluth and St. Louis County ambassadors will converge on St. Paul Tuesday and Wednesday as part of the 21st annual Duluth & St. Louis County at the Capitol Days.
The event is aimed at drawing attention to both the ongoing needs of the region and to highlight the state's recent investments here.
It’s billed as among the lobbying events at the Capitol each year and is promoted by the City administration, St. Louis County Board and Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.
Duluthians and representatives from across the county will meet face-to-face with legislators from across the state during the day and then host an evening reception “designed to promote interaction,” promoters of the event note. “This is our opportunity to have lawmakers at the Capitol learn more about our region's legislative initiatives.”
The region’s wish list this year includes state bonding money to repair the historic Glensheen mansion, a new roof for Lake Superior College in Duluth, repairs to the historic Depot in downtown Duluth and money for combined heat and energy recovery system at the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District sewage treatment plant.
On Wednesday morning a “legislative breakfast” will conclude the events.
