Duluth Mayor Nancy Harris has chosen “Local Duluth” as the theme for her upcoming State of the City Address.
In preparation for the address, Mayor Harris, accompanied by Shiner, mayor of Duluth’s Chattapoochee Dog Park, have been taking an inventory of what Duluth has to offer its citizens by visiting local businesses, schools, parks, and civic organizations within the city limits. The two mayors have made more than 40 visits, according to Mayor Harris.
The city and the Duluth Civitan Club will present the 8th annual State of the City Address Tuesday, Jan. 22, at the Gwinnett Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Pkwy. This year’s event will again include a Business Expo.
The Business Expo begins at 11 a.m. Doors open for lunch at 11:30 a.m. followed by Mayor Harris’ entertaining and informative speech at noon. Admission is $25 including lunch. Tables for eight are available for $175. $10 of the admission cost is tax-deductible. Proof of the Pudding is catering the lunch.
