Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Duluth City Councilor Patrick Boyle says he's looking for new ways to advance the Second District as he throws his hat in the ring for a second term. Boyle made his candidacy announcement at the Mount Royal Library saying he plans to reconnect with voters in his district prior to the November election. The first–term councilor says he wants to fight for more money for street repair over the next four years. Boyle says his history of lobbying successfully for a parks referendum, standing up for the prosperity of local libraries and authoring rental property reform, puts him in a good position to continue his work through a second term. Boyle was elected Council President in January. "Over the last three years I've witnessed re–birthed optimism in our town. I've seen continued growth and progress. With the help of the voters, I would love to be here another four years and work my tail off for the citizens of the Second District," Patrick Boyle, Duluth City Councilor, said. The next step in Boyle's run for reelection is an effort to secure the DFL endorsement on May 18th. After that, Boyle plans to go door–to–door to meet constituents. Currently there is no one running against Boyle in the second district. Justin Reis, NNC. jreis@kbjr.com
