Jenna Yeakle announces candidacy for Duluth Council At-Large

Another candidate has announced they are seeking a seat on the Duluth City Council.

Jenna Yeakle is running for an At-Large seat, hosting an official campaign kick-off on Monday, April 3 at 10:00am outside Duluth City Hall.

“I am running to move our city away from the status quo, where decisions are being made by and for the people who are already doing well, while neglecting our community’s biggest needs,” said Yeakle. “Governance at its best is taking care of each other, and we have tremendous opportunities right now to ensure the power of these decisions is in our hands.”

Yeakle is a community organizer with the Sierra Club, a Duluth East graduate, and a union member. She grew up in Duluth, still living in the City with her partner and their dog, as well as backyard chickens.
