Seth Justice Loeffler-Kemp, Emily Larson for Duluth Mayor campaign manager, on the 2023 campaign: "Our campaign is nearing 10,000 doors knocked and we’ve been having great conversations with voters. These direct one-to-one conversations set Mayor Larson apart in this race. And what we’re hearing confirms that people share our vision for Duluth and increasingly recognize there is a clear choice this election: continuing to move forward or risk going backwards.
Emily is a tested and compassionate leader with a record of accomplishment: from the largest growth in housing in decades, to creating a sustainable street repair program and going from 2 to 17 miles this year to 20 miles of streets scheduled to be repaired next year to record-breaking private investment and addressing our changing climate. These are issues people care about, and as someone born and raised in Duluth and who chose to move back, her focus on building Duluth’s future for the long-term is particularly important to me.
Elections are more than individual names on a ballot, they are choices on the values and future of our communities. My heart is full of gratitude for everyone who is stepping forward to ensure we continue moving our city forward."
Jessica Worden, Hermantown girls tennis coach, on the 2023 season: "It is hard to believe the Hermantown girls tennis season has already come to a close. This group of ladies was by far one of the most fabulous I have worked with. It will be sad to see our seniors transition on to the next phase, but we wish them all the best and welcome them back anytime. With over 30 girls on the team, it's been fabulous getting to know each one and assist them with their tennis game. Everyone is eager to learn, ask questions and has the fighting desire to compete! I cannot wait to return to the courts again next season."
