In just a week, Duluth voters will be asked to choose a new 2nd District St. Louis County commissioner.

City Councilor Patrick Boyle and former Councilor Jim Stauber are vying for the seat left vacant when Commissioner Steve O'Neil passed away.

In a forum put on by the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce Tuesday morning, candidates were asked what city and county services they'd combine to save tax dollars.

Patrick Boyle said "I think we can share information technology, which in my time on the city council, it's unbelievable how much it costs."

Jim Stauber said "purchasing and supply system. Why not join forces there. Councilor Boyle mentioned information technology, a huge opportunity. Accounting and financing, a huge opportunity."

Both candidates were to participated in another forum at 6:30 p.m. at the Lakeside-Lester Park Community Club.

The special election will be held on Tuesday, January 14th. Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
