Earlier this week, candidates for Duluth School Board took turns answering questions.
On Tuesday, the forums conclude with candidates for City Council from District 2 (which covers parts of eastern and northern Duluth) and District 4 (which includes Duluth Heights, Piedmont Heights, Lincoln Park, and parts of West Duluth). To register in advance for that forum, go here (https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_nukzOKmJRxuqEFM4AJcLYQ). After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Attendance for this forum also is limited to 100.
The newspaper and chamber have been partnering to host candidate forums for at least 11 years as part of a commitment to help eligible voters in Duluth make informed choices. The forums also inform the News Tribune’s endorsement decisions. All the forums will be posted afterward for viewing any time, on-demand.
The choices we make on Election Day on Nov. 2 will help shape our city and set its direction and priorities for years to come. Be sure to vote — and be sure your vote is informed.
