Four Duluth organizations held candidate screenings for upcoming elections

Posted: Updated:

On Sunday, four new Duluth organizations held candidate screenings, for the upcoming Duluth city council elections.

The event marks the first time any of the groups will consider endorsements in Duluth elections.

The screening was held at Teatro Zuccone and the community had a chance to attend and ask questions.
Some of those questions were on Polymet, earned sick and safe time, minimum wage and feminism.
A member of the Twin Ports Democratic Socialists of America says there should be more screenings like this for up and coming candidates. 

"I think this is just one of the most important things we could be doing because we are learning now about what our candidates think and we are also a different voice, we are a different entity asking questions. And another important thing is, we are all working together in coalition," said Sharla Gardner.

Seven candidates for city council were screened this afternoon. 

The elections will be held in the fall.
