In 1999 shortly after my retirement from the United States Air Force my family and I relocated to Duluth from the Washington D.C. area to work for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.  We chose Duluth because of its small town feel, diverse population, and the quality of schools.  I believe citizens must take an active part in their community in order for it to advance.  It is imperative for the City of Duluth to develop new economic sources while supporting our existing businesses and serving the needs of our residents.
