Have you ever considered running for local elected office?

Several local seats will be on the ballot this fall, creating the potential for a significant number of prospective candidates to come to the fore. Keeping with the Chamber's mission that our role in the political process should be one of educating and informing, rather than candidate or partisan endorsement, we are pleased to partner with the Duluth News Tribune to host this free Forum discussion.
