PolyMet

Duluth For Clean Water

The controversy over the proposed Polymet mine is heated, to say the least.  It's often framed (among other things) as jobs v. the environment or the Iron Range v. the Twin Cities.

But in the middle - geographically and, to an extent, philosophically - is Duluth and Duluth for Clean Water.

One of Duluth's newest non-profits made a splash last Saturday night, holding a fact-based panel discussion with top-tier speakers about the proposed PolyMet mine -- and following it up with a social hour and live music.

The group Mining Truth's new ad is aimed squarely at Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton.  Aaron Klemz, a spokesman for the group, says the governor is ultimately the decision maker when it comes to Polymet's proposed sulfide mine.  Even so, Klemz says he hasn't given up on the idea that the public can have a voice in the outcome.
