Virginia, MN – Today, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson announced her support for Jason Metsa’s congressional campaign.
“Northeast Minnesota needs a champion in Washington D.C. who will fight every day for our shared values. That champion is Jason Metsa,” Mayor Larson said.
“In the past seven years, I have worked with Jason both in his capacity as a Legislator and as a labor organizer. Together we have worked on issues which range from ensuring marriage equality across Minnesota to raising the statewide minimum wage. During his time in the Legislature, Jason has had Duluth's back, and he has a vision for rebuilding a robust and diverse economic future for the entire region.
Most importantly, Jason knows how to be effective, whether he is in the majority or not. In a time of growing political divide, Jason has the ability to bring people together around common experiences and shared values.”
“I’m honored to have Mayor Larson’s support for this congressional campaign,” Metsa said. “Her leadership has strengthened our region, and I am grateful to have her help in moving the 8th Congressional District forward.”
