Jeanne Koneczny for 5th District Duluth City Council

Lifelong Western Duluthian Jeanne Koneczny announced her candidacy for 5th District Duluth City Council today. “I’m running because I am passionate about Duluth, and Western Duluth specifically.  My belief in our potential to thrive when we work together is absolute.  I have always said that if you want to make a difference, get out there and work for it, don’t sit back and just complain about things.  I want to be collaborative in finding solutions to improve our quality of life; better streets and infrastructure, reducing crime and drug problems and helping families achieve homeownership so they can stay in Duluth and put their talents to work here, not the Twin Cities”.
