CHUM City Council Candidate Forum Set for Oct. 23 | Politics
CHUM will hold a forum of Duluth City Council candidates on Wednesday, Oct. 23.
The forum will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Gimaajii gymnasium at 202 W 2nd Street. The discussion is expected to focus on poverty and inequality.
The six candidates running for four seats on the council have been invited to participate. Zack Filipovich, Barb Russ, Skip Sandman, and Ryan Stauber are running for the two at-large seats up for election.
Incumbent Patrick Boyle is the only candidate for the second-district seat, though he is also running in the special election for St. Louis County Commissioner. Howie Hanson is the only active candidate in the fourth-district race; former councilor Garry Krause's name will appear on the ballot but he is not actively campaigning.
The election will be held Nov. 5.
