Congrats Duluth

Now that all the votes have been counted, it looks like the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs will be getting their new ice arena.

61% of voters voted yes on a miniscule raise in restaurant tax to create funding for a new ice arena. The vote seemed like a no-brainer. Restaurant-goers in Duluth will end up paying in the vicinity of an extra dollar on their restaurant tabs in return for a beautiful new arena that should help make Duluth a more competitive hockey team, and bring more events and extra revenue into the city.
