Duluth mayoral candidate Roger Reinert on collecting the Duluth News Tribune Editorial Board's endorsement – "I'm grateful to the DNT for a very strong endorsement. 'It's time for something different' is more than a mantra – it's what Duluthians are saying from one end of town to the other. The endorsement also reflects the thoughtfulness and civility that we expect in our local elections. Not the DC playbook of attack mailers, billboard, and social media ads.
Local government is about the basics: streets, utilities, and public safety. Parks and community centers. Effective and efficient, and that at a rate we can afford and sustain. There is no magic or wishful thinking involved – it's basic expectations that we expect more and do better."
