Marsha Bomar has decided to seek a third term in Post 1 on the Duluth City Council. Qualifying for three council posts starts Aug. 26 and continues through Aug. 28.
Bomar said telephone calls and emails from constituents encouraged her to seek another term on the council.
“They made the case: My expertise, my strategic relationships and my style have helped the city advance many important projects. Now the decision is official. On Aug. 26 papers will be filed to qualify for my third term on the Duluth City Council,” Bomar said.
Bomar is a principal in Stantec, a global engineering firm that specializes in transportation projects.
“I appreciate the recognition of my contributions. It is a critical moment to contribute my planning and engineering knowledge as well as relationships,” said Bomar.
“The trust of the citizens and businesses is required for effectiveness. I have worked hard to set a high standard during my first two terms,” she said. “I want us to be a responsible, business-friendly city and the place of choice for all generations to live.”
Bomar said she is interested in promoting growth throughout the city. “Each corridor and character area deserves to be in the spotlight, and we need citizen input to help us identify the opportunities, challenges and solutions,” Bomar said.
“I plan to continue a focus to help all corners of the city succeed and find implementable ideas. I will further many relationships that can lead to public-private partnerships,” she said.
Other posts on the council to be on the Nov. 5 ballot in the city election are Post 2 held by Jim Dugan and Post 3 held by Billy Jones. Both have indicated they plan to run for re-election.
