I am writing to express my enthusiastic support of Emily Larson for Duluth mayor.

My daughter is the fifth generation of my family to live in Duluth, but I don’t stay here because of history. My wife and I choose Duluth because of its size, beautiful wilderness, and lake we can’t live without. But mostly it’s because of the creative, passionate, intelligent, quirky people.

Council President Larson embodies what is great about the people of Duluth. She is a thoughtful decision maker committed to a city that offers as much to those struggling as those with financial means. She supports the arts as fundamental to our city. She is dedicated to the sustainable growth of our economy and population. She leads with the values that make the people of Duluth great.

I won’t agree with every decision Larson makes as mayor, but I know those decisions will be made with integrity after weighing the best information available and with the good of Duluth in mind.

I love Duluth and strongly believe Emily Larson is the best person to lead our city. I will be voting for Emily Larson for mayor on Nov. 3 and encourage readers to do the same.
