Forsman trusted to advocate for infrastructure funding in St. Paul – Duluth News Tribune

0

Duluth’s infrastructure is at a critical crossroads. As work on the nearly half a billion dollar Twin Ports Interchange continues in the heart of our city, other important projects need to be addressed, including the replacement of lead pipes, the Blatnik Bridge and the reimagining the I-35 corridor through downtown.

We need experienced leadership to advocate for as much state and federal funding as possible for our city.

City Council Speaker Arik Forsman is in a unique position to be that Duluth champion in the state legislature.

Duluth faces a labor shortage that must be addressed to complete infrastructure projects, as well as sustain the housing and retail construction boom. Arik Forsman has been widely supported by building and construction unions in Duluth and is the voice they trust to join together to advocate for funding and help address these challenges to keep Duluth growing.

As a small business owner and young in the community, we need forward thinking thinkers who get things done. For these and many other reasons, I want Arik to be the voice of Duluth in St. Paul at this critical time.
