Newly-formed Duluth BizPAC launches ad campaign urging voters to elect
candidates committed to protecting their pocketbooks and safety;
new website – DuluthBizPac.net – has additional details about the effort
A diverse group of Duluth business people and residents has launched an ad campaign that urges voters to elect candidates committed to protecting taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. The newly-formed Duluth BizPAC began running radio and digital advertising on Tuesday, exactly two weeks before the Nov. 6 election.
“Too often in Duluth, we simply vote for candidates whose names are familiar, without thinking about how their actions in office will impact our paychecks and families,” said Duluth BizPAC President Rob Stenberg. “Duluth BizPAC is running ads asking voters to closely look at candidates’ positions these final two weeks and elect those committed to lowering runaway taxes, removing job-creation impediments and making our community a safer place to live.”
Duluth BizPAC just launched a website with further details about the organization’s purpose and positions.
Duluth BizPAC was formed this summer as an all-volunteer political action committee that focuses on fiscal responsibility and creating a better environment for job creation. Joining Stenberg on its board of directors are Jim Caesar, John Kratz, Tracy Lundeen, Brian Maki, and Beth Wentzlaff.
At its last meeting, Duluth BizPAC endorsed Pete Stauber for U.S. Congress and Jim Booth for St. Louis County board.
“Until Duluth starts getting more balanced representation in government, we’ll keep seeing our taxes go up and our businesses move elsewhere for more affordable opportunities,” said Stenberg. “This is just the first election of many in the coming years where Duluth BizPAC intends to have a strong voice in identifying candidates who will best represent Duluthians.”
