DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - Incumbent Mayor Emily Larson and challenger Roger Reinert were asked the following question regarding housing.

The housing crisis has existed in Duluth for a long time. In the last year, progress has been made to create more affordable housing. We’ve also reported on plans to create more apartment-style housing downtown. However, the city’s top employers say they’re having a very difficult time attracting workers to the city, due to the lack of single-family homes and other types of workforce housing.

Mayor Emily Larson and Candidate Roger Reinert how to increase single-family housing, a reported reason for Duluth's slow growth.
