DULUTH, MN -

November elections are just three weeks away, which means it's crunch time for candidates vying for a spot on the Duluth City Council.

At stake is Duluth's 2nd District Seat, 4th District Seat, and two At-Large Seats. 

As November draws nearer, several topics--from housing, and public safety cuts, to Earned Sick and Safe Time--are fueling debate along the campaign trail. 

In this week's Beyond the Headlines, host Dan Wolfe sits down with all eight candidates to take a closer look at who they are outside of the race for city council, and where they stand on finding solutions to the housing crisis Duluth is facing. The candidates also discuss the pros and cons of mandating Earned Sick and Safe Time for Duluth businesses.

This week's episode is divided into four segments:

Segment 1 (2nd Dist. Race):
- Joel Sipress (incumbent)
- Ryan Sistad (candidate)

Segment 2 (4th Dist. Race):
