JOE MACOR FOR CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE
Public Safety, streets and infrastructure, housing and taxes, and family supporting jobs are priorities that I feel need our undivided attention as a community. We need to address these issues head on. I have seen and experienced the challenges we are facing today as a business owner, husband, parent, and coach and I want to be a part of moving Duluth city government back to serving its citizens in a way that is most economically sustainable and efficient.
As your City Councilor, I will make it a priority to watch where your taxpayer dollars are being spent and base policy decisions on how they will impact all the citizens of Duluth.
Our aging infrastructure should be a city council top concern. From roads to water and sewer, taxpayer dollars need to be prioritized to maintain and repair these systems giving residents peace of mind.
Ensuring our police and fire departments have adequate funding for hiring, retention, and training is paramount over these next few years. With rising call-loads and increasing retirements, supporting our public safety departments has never been more important.
HOUSING FOR EVERY INCOME LEVEL
Every Duluthian deserves good housing. Whether you're an individual, single parent, have a growing family, or a senior looking to downsize. The availability of reasonably priced housing is scarce. As a city, we should streamline our planning and permitting to encourage development of new housing stock and accessibility for all Duluthians.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & GOOD-PAYING JOBS
Duluth must gain long-term financial sustainability by investing into our economic development and encouraging new and growing businesses. Economic expansion will help jump start our local small businesses and get men and women back to work with family supporting jobs.
