Emily Larson

I’m excited to announce our endorsement of Emily Larson in the race for Duluth Mayor. Emily is a strong progressive champion who shares our vision for advancing social, racial and economic justice in Duluth, and she knows what it takes to make positive change happen. We are proud to endorse her.

Over the last month, you’ve been crystal clear about your vision for Duluth – and that includes electing a mayor who will focus on building a city where everyone – not just some Duluthians – can thrive, whether that means closing our equity gaps, greening the city, ensuring earned sick & safe time for all, or increasing affordable housing.

Emily is the best choice for Mayor because she will fight for a Duluth that benefits all families in our city, not just some. As one of our members put it, “she is a champion of TakeAction values and someone who will work with us to move Duluth forward for everyone.”

Emily doesn’t just talk about a fair economy and racial equity, she walks the talk – whether through her leadership as City Council President, or hitting the phones with members like you to place women and families at the center of the last election.

Emily is working to build a grassroots movement to ensure that the next chapter of Duluth reflects the vision she has for her home, a stronger city with an economy that works for all citizens- West to East- and invests in its diverse community. And it is a vision that we at TakeAction share too.

Thanks for taking this next step to create a Minnesota that works for everyone. Together, we’ll send a candidate that shares a bold vision for equity and a deep commitment to diverse communities to the mayor’s office.

I’m so excited for what’s next,
