Duluth and Hermantown Pass School Measures On Election Night

If you’ve been in Hermantown, you’ve seen the ‘Hawk Pride’ signs, which were gathering support for a referendum that would raise taxes to help build a new high school, upgrade school safety and turn the current high school into a middle school. 

Duluth also had schools on the ballot, looking to first renew the current operating levy and then a second proposal to increase the levy amount to help with such things as growing class sizes.

All of the above passed, but it was close for two of them.  Hermantown’s ‘Hawk Pride’ campaign worked as the referendum passed by less than 400 votes.  In Duluth, 66% of voters favored renewing the operating levy.  However, the request to increase the levy amount narrowly passed by only 306 votes.

Did you support raising taxes if the money is used to improve schools?
