Duluth business owner and longtime youth coach Joe Macor launches campaign for City Council At-Large

Duluth, MN... Joe Macor, a business owner and lifelong resident of
Western Duluth’s Fond du Lac neighborhood, announced Monday that
he’s running for Duluth City Council At-Large.


Macor, 38, graduated from Denfeld High School in 2001, then attended
Fond Du Lac Tribal & Community College where he graduated with a law
enforcement degree.

“Public Safety, streets and infrastructure, housing and taxes, and
good paying jobs are priorities that I feel need our undivided attention
as a community,” said Macor. “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 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,” said Macor.

 “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 Duluth families, homeowners, job creators, young people, vulnerable populations, and others,” explained Macor.  “My experiences have given me some perspective in all of these areas.”


Macor and his wife, Holly, have owned Comfort Living Adult Foster Care in western Duluth since 2008, where they and five other employees care for developmentally disabled adults.  “As a business owner, job creator, and advocate for vulnerable people, I know first-hand there are opportunities where Duluth can do better.”


As a father to three boys and a youth football and high school alpine ski coach, Joe’s commitment to helping young people is un-paralleled. He has coached youth football since 2001 and is president of the Denfeld Junior Football League. He also volunteers as a founder and president of the Northland Youth Football Conference, which stretches from the Twin Ports to Ashland and from Two Harbors to Moose Lake. Macor, is also –co-vice president of the Irving Community Club and serves on the GND Development Alliance.


 “Through my family, my business, and the organizations I’m involved in, I’m invested in Duluth, and I want to see this city succeed in providing a safe and prosperous lifestyle to its citizens,” shared Macor.  “I will bring a well-rounded perspective, common sense ideas, and a “Let’s face and let’s fix it” attitude to the City Council.  I’m looking forward to using this summer to meet face-to-face with voters, learn their concerns, and earn their votes.”
