DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - The Duluth Police and Fire Unions released a joint video endorsing Roger Reinert for Mayor of Duluth.

The video starts saying, “IFF Local 101 Duluth Professional Firefighters and LES 538 Duluth Police proudly endorse Roger Reinert for Mayor of Duluth.”
The 1-minute 50-second video posted on the Duluth Firefighters Local 101 Facebook Page explained why they believe Reinert’s polices would be better.
The video also listed complaints about incumbent Mayor Emily Larson’s polices.
Part of the joint statement included, “Citizens of Duluth Shouldn’t have to choose public safety as a priority on their ballot. And unfortunately this is the position our current administration has put us in. Duluth needs a change.”

Emily Larson is running for a third term in office.
Larson and Reinert have raised the most money of the five Mayoral candidates running.
Three other candidates include Robert David Schieve, Jesse Peterson and Julie A. Mead.
Jair Dosser filed to run, but withdrew.
