Local Solutions to End Poverty forum held in Duluth
Duluth city council and school board candidates field questions from community
DULUTH, Minn. – Duluth City Council and Duluth School Board candidates took part in a public forum on Tuesday. The Local Solutions to End Poverty forum was held at the Duluth Denfeld High School. Local candidates fielded questions from the community on topics related to education, housing and transportation.
“The hope is that collaboration comes out of it between the community and the elected officials,” forum organizer Drew Anderson said. “Ultimately change happens in the community, it has to happen by the community. So, when people are able to talk directly to each other, at events like this, hopefully outside of events like this, those changes can happen.”
The organizers will hold another meeting in six months with the winning candidates, to try and hold them accountable to promises they’ve made at the forum
