This vibrant, 300-page, full-color book features hundreds of pictures and original art by local artists. The narrative is told through 150+ snapshot essays describing Don’s entertaining, at times treacherous and often embarrassing journey from 25-year-old city councilor to 40-year-old mayor … and the notable revitalization of Duluth, Minnesota, during the same period of time.
Section One follows a young, idealistic politico embarking on a strange new adventure. Section Two tells tales of his darkest days, when all hope seems lost. Section Three shows a community rallying to define a better future. It’s essentially the original Star Wars trilogy, only in the much more bizarre galaxy of home-rule-charter municipal government.
