Currently the president of the North Shore Rotary and on the board of North Shore Horizons, Lew Conner wants to add another leadership role: Mayor of Two Harbors.

“The focus has to be on moving forward. I’m very transparent, and I think rigorous honesty is very important. My ability to listen, has worked well for me over the years,” he told.

He worked for years in higher education, and is semi-retired now. Conner and his wife Jen moved to town a couple of years ago, and he feels like he can bring some fresh perspective.

“What are the needs for the community, but still acknowledge that bringing tourists in is extremely important as well. What do all members of the community need, not just the long-time residents, but also the new families that have moved in. That means looking at housing,” Conner said.

Others who’ve announced intent to run: Robin Glaser and Jay Cole.

You may remember Two Harbors citizens voted to recall former mayor Chris Swanson in August.

Filing opens the 27th. The special election is set for February 14th.
