Primary elections are coming up on September 10 for Duluth City Council and Duluth School Board positions and it is my hope the residents of this city will elect people to keep the city moving forward and not elect those who will look to take steps backwards.
As a public school alumni and a father of a public school child, I am proud of the Duluth Public Schools. I know many are upset about the Red Plan and how the Red Plan was put into effect and how taxes were raised without a public vote but please, Duluth needed new schools. Let’s not live in the past and I think it is time to move on and not continue to be mad about the Red Plan.
As I look at the list of some candidates who are trying to get elected for a seat in the Duluth School Board I hope some of them will not make it past the primary.
It is time for the citizens of Duluth to stop being mad about the Red Plan and embrace the changes and how the changes make the future of the city better and how much better educated our children will be with new schools. The new schools are also better resources for our teachers to teach. I’d be happy to debate with anyone for example that the new Lester Park School isn’t a better resource than the 100 year old building they tore down in exchange.
Duluth residents please vote for people who want to improve our future not harm it.
