Another local resident has declared plans to seek a Duluth City Council post in 2013.
Businessman David Cossette said in an email to Patch recently that he will seek Post 1, which currently is held by Marsha Anderson Bomar.
In a position statement, Cossette said, "Using my business experience and vision, I will help Duluth become:
- A place to belong;
- A city to invest in;
- An inclusive community with a level playing field."
Also, his experience as a commercial property owner has led to some interaction with Duluth City Council.
This makes two challengers who have announced their candidacies as qualifying opens for the Nov. 5 election. Kirkland Carden says he will run for Post 2.
Incumbents Bomar, Jim Dugan (Post 2) and Billy Jones (Post 3) have said they plan to seek re-election.
Qualifying opens Monday (Aug. 26) at 8:30 a.m. and closes Wednesday at 4:30 p.m., according to the city website.
