Jen McEwen

State Senator

I am proud to endorse Wendy Durrwachter for Duluth City Council. When something needs to be done Wendy steps up to do it. Her understanding and advocacy of issues facing Duluthians, especially our young adults, is exactly what we need for all in our community to thrive.

Alicia Kozlowski

State Representative

I’ve witnessed Wendy’s contagious joy, tenacity, and skills since working side by side in the hospitality industry. As a single parent, renter & a creative entrepreneur, she knows deeply the Duluth story – the struggles & opportunities. Wendy will be a strong advocate for families and young people, accessible neighborhoods and infrastructure, and she’ll fight for an economy that works for everyone, not just some of us. I’m proudly endorsing Wendy because she’ll lead with values and catalyze community-led solutions to action for District 1 and beyond.

Ashley Grimm

County Commissioner

I believe in Wendy and how she will represent the 1st district. She has been dedicated to ensuring Lake Superior and our watersheds are protected. She deeply knows how important childcare is and will continue to fight for this need to be met. She is a collaborative, hard-working, responsive person who will be an exceptional city councilor.

Joel Sipress

Former City Councilor

Wendy has lived a classic Duluth story – pursuing her artistic passions while raising a family as a single mom working in the restaurant industry. She’s experienced first-hand both the best that Duluth has to offer and the struggles that so many in our community endure just to make ends meet. She is devoted to this community, and she knows it well. She’ll bring a much needed perspective to the Duluth City Council.

Doug Bowen-Bailey

Community Leader

I appreciate Wendy’s willingness to step-up and serve our community. When we were working together planning Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday events, she was a good listener and followed through on her commitments. These qualities will serve the constituents of District 1 well if they select her as their representative.

Jocelyn Heid

Community Leader

As City Councilor, Wendy will be a strong, committed voice for DFL values. And with that voice, she will be a caring and effective representative for her district.

Amy Giddings

K-6 Public School Educator, Parent, Server

I've known Wendy for almost a decade in several different capacities (colleague, friend, professional musician). She is smart, dedicated, responsible, and thoughtful. Her goals for Duluth align with mine, and has my full support.

Azrin Awal

City Councilor

Wendy is an advocate and ally who understands the struggles facing Duluthians because she’s lived many of them. I endorse Wendy for City Council and look forward to working together toward a Duluth that works for all of us.

Leah karmaker

Community Leader & Architectural Designer

Our city council needs Wendy's passion and diligence. I'm confident that Wendy brings the lived experience, creativity, and persistence to effectively tackle our city's most urgent issues. Housing and climate action can't wait - and Wendy is the candidate in District 1 who offers solutions, not bandaids.

Mike Mayou

City Councilor

Through my time working with Wendy, I know she is grounded and committed to doing the hard work. As a working-class, single mom, she has a true understanding of some of the most pressing issues facing our community, and I'm confident she will be a strong advocate for positive change on the council. Please join me in supporting Wendy for District 1!
