The City of Duluth is looking to fill two positions which have stood empty for over a year. And your vote could help determine how it’s done. The communications officer would work directly with the city council on policy issues and do lobbying on the city’s behalf. The community relations officer would focus more on connections with local organizations and neighborhood initiatives. Mayor Ness says the community relations job will likely stay open for awhile due to budget constraints, but the communications position will soon be filled one way or the other.
