3 Best YouTube Memories of Mayor Don Ness

There were 12 candidates vying for the Mayoral position when Don Ness was elected as Mayor of Duluth in 2007. He chose to run for a second term and was unopposed.  That was the first time that had happened in Duluth since it was incorporated in 1887.  He has made the decision to not run for a third term.  I wanted to highlight a few of the "candid" moments during his time in office.  I admire his ability to take on the serious issues while still maintaining his relationship with the community and being VERY "real".  I hope you enjoy these memories and it puts a smile on your face.

UPDATE: Plans To Remodel Or Rebuild Duluth Public Library Is Up For Discussion Again

The Duluth Public Library is 35 years old, I was shocked!  Of course with a building of that age there are concerns about how energy efficient it is and there have been laws that force the building to comply with.  SO, spend millions on renovations OR spend millions on building new?  That has been the question on the table for the last few months and it looks like it will stay on the table, for now.

Cross “Ride Bike With The Mayor” Off Your Bucket List, You’re Invited To Ride Bike & Lunch With Mayor Ness

When I got my first job at the Wrenshall School pool I rode my bike to work on a SUPER hilly, loose graveled Alcohol Road (yes, that is the actual name of the road).  Not because I was "green" or I enjoyed the exercise.  It was because my mom worked and if I wanted the job it was bike or walk.  Where was National Bike to Work Day then?
