Noah Hobbs, a Duluth city councilor until January, has announced he will run for the St. Louis County Board.


Earlier this week, Commissioner Beth Olson said she will not seek re-election for the 3rd District seat, which covers the western part of Duluth.

In his announcement, Hobbs said he wants to "continue to give back through public service." 

Hobbs works at One Roof Community Housing and has served on boards for organizations like CHUM, PAVSA and the Lake Superior Zoo. 

He said he sees the biggest issues facing St. Louis County as housing access, opioid abuse and mental health, foster care, the child care shortage, workforce development and homelessness.

"I have a proven record of effectively addressing the issues that matter to West Duluthian's, leading the Duluth City Council to increasing the number of miles of road fixed in Duluth by 750%," Hobbs wrote in a press release. 

Olson's term wraps up Jan. 4, 2021. The general election is Nov. 3.
