Hi, I am Janet Kennedy and I am District Five Duluth City Councilor. I believe it’s time we make a difference in building a Western community of neighborhoods with opportunities for everyone to live work, and play. I am rooted in the community and have a deep passion and the experience to build what we want to see for today and into the future. Community investment begins with community and my vision includes building on the unique assets that Western Duluth has to offer.
A lifelong resident of West Duluth, I am currently serving as the President of the Duluth Planning Commission and was appointed by the Mayor to serve on the Imagine Duluth 2035 Comprehensive Plan. I am also the President of Riverfront Community Development, which has had success in building community and business coalitions across the West Side of Duluth that are working on rebuilding and redeveloping Western Duluth.
