Janet Kennedy announces re-election campaign for Duluth City Council

Janet Kennedy has announced her re-election campaign for the Duluth City Council District Five. 

“I am proud to serve the Fifth District,” said Janet Kennedy. “I am pleased to work with and have the support for re-election from many community members and neighbors that share my vision of growing Western Duluth.” 

Janet Kennedy is in her first term on the Duluth City Council, and is currently serving as Council President.

“We have so many great assets and amenities in Western Duluth,” Kennedy continued, “such as the GND Rec Skate Park, the Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad, and the Spirit Valley Building for Youth and Community Wellness project proposal. For the last four years, we have shown that Western Duluth is open for business and ready to help increase the tax base.”

In her re-election campaign, Janet Kennedy says she will continue her work in decreasing the tax burden on the taxpayers, building healthy communities with good safety nets, and attracting new development to Western Duluth that fit within the needs of the neighbors and residents. 

“I am most proud of the new businesses and development we are attracting to Western Duluth, as well as the time sitting down and listening to what the residents and businesses need and want, rather than take a top-down approach,” said Janet Kennedy. “Input from the people who are most impacted is important to me, they need to know someone is looking out for them.” 

Janet is a mother of two and a grandmother of nine. A lifelong Duluthian, she has worked in the Physical Therapy field for twenty-five years and is a business owner.

If re-elected, Janet Kennedy would be the most senior member of the Duluth City Council.
