Duluth's young mayor isn't so young any more.

Thursday, supporters gathered at Porter's Restaurant to wish Mayor Don Ness a happy 40th birthday.

"I feel incredibly grateful and incredibly blessed by this community," Ness said.  "This community has shaped who I am, and how the contributions and the generosity and the willingness to pull me along when I need it has made me the person I am."

The mayor's office next comes up for election in November 2015.  Ness said he and his wife Laura won't make a decision about his future political plans until the end of the year.

"If anybody tells you that they know what I'm going to do next year, they don't know what I'm going to do next year because I haven't made that decision and we'll make it in good time and I ask for folks to be patient and give our family the time necessary to make a good decision and the best decision for our family," Ness said.

Thursday's luncheon event was a fundraiser for Ness' mayoral campaign.  Another birthday-themed fundraiser was scheduled for Thursday evening in Minneapolis.
