Campaign Enters Home Stretch

Last week was an extremely busy one for my campaign. I attended a number of community events, knocked on doors and met with various community groups.

On Tuesday, I attended the Duluth Historical Society meeting at the Strickland House Museum where Professor Richard Rawls of Georgia Gwinnett College spoke. The event was part of the “Gwinnett Reads” book program. (more…)

Your Voice Counts: Early Voting Begins October 13

Today was a full day of campaigning as my team and I distributed campaign literature and notification of election date and location, November 3 at the new City Hall. October 13 is the early voting date and deadline for early voting.

All active and inactive registered voters have an opportunity to make their voice heard on election day, demonstrating concern and care regarding Duluth’s quality of life and future for current and future generations. For the sake of our children’s future, please be an active part of this constitutional process—your voice counts.

Elise Serves at the Duluth Fall Festival

The Fall Festival kicked into high gear beginning with a volunteer and sponsors BBQ lunch and display set-up on Friday. I had the opportunity to speak with Representative Brooks Coleman, exchanging thoughts and ideas concerning Highway 120 realignment, and gaining some interesting insight regarding that project.

During the next two days, I worked part of the time at the Civitan booth; circulated throughout the Festival, greeting and meeting folks from all over the country; and occasionally did spot trash pickup on the grounds for items that did not quite make it into the trash cans. The Boy Scouts did a great job of staying on top of the garbage detail.

On the Campaign Trail

Today, I was back on the campaign trail going door-to-door, meeting with citizens and listening to their concerns and providing information so that they could make an informed decision regarding my run for Post 3 City Council seat. It was a very productive day, and it was a great pleasure to meet and chat with fellow Duluthians.

The VOTE ELISE banner hanging from Lucile Walker’s balcony overlooking the town green looks great. Thanks, Lucile, for being a vital part of my campaign.

Elise Sponsors Wildcat Band

Today, I had the awesome privilege of supporting our Duluth youth by becoming a sponsor of the Duluth High School Wildcat Band. GO WILDCATS!

Keeping Up with City Council Business

As a way of staying current with city business, I am continuing to attend City Council work sessions and council meetings, as I have been for the past year. Work sessions and council meetings provide a great opportunity for citizens to be informed and involved. Some work sessions include periodic status updates from staff regarding various projects, and citizens are always given an opportunity to present their ideas or concerns to council during the “matters from the citizens” part of council meetings.
