News Tribune, May 31, 1983 Wayne Gilbert, assistant St. Louis County attorney, plans to announce today whether he will run for mayor of Duluth this fall. During the last year, Gilbert has been trying to determine whether he has the political and financial support to challenge Mayor John Fedo. Approximately 1,500 Lions Club members from Minnesota and Canada will visit Duluth this weekend for the 1983 Lions Club District 5M International Convention at the Arena-Auditorium. Members and their families are expected to spend about $300,000 in Duluth during the convention.
