Duluth News Tribune
Our economy is diverse. Between mining, tourism, transportation, aviation, commercial, technology, retail, and hospitality, it takes a little bit of everything to keep the Northland running. The diversity is what makes us great. New businesses are finding success here because of our people and natural resources. We live in an amazing place, and business owners in all industries are committed to keeping it that way.
Our region is strongest when we understand and respect one another. It’s strongest when we find compromise, as state Sen. Erik Simonson of Duluth called for in his opinion piece in the News Tribune last month (Lawmaker’s View: “Let science, law, process dictate PolyMet permitting,” March 28). Our different industries complement one another. When one of us succeeds, we all succeed.
