Many students impartial to mayoral elections despite housing issues
Lisa Kunkel's and Julia Davis' blogs says most college students are uninterested in the election and its issues. Dane Benson’s blog talks about the renting issue, an issue that has the potential to really affect the way students in Duluth live. A lengthy expose, he describes different aspects of the issue that clueless students should tune into because of the immediate impact on the students’ off-campus housing options. The moral of the story: be awesome to one another. Donna O’Neill’s blog looks at the housing issue, as well, focusing on the relationship between student renters, landlords and neighbors because DARR (a group of landlords) is looking for ways to fix issues in these relationships without the intervention of the city council.
