Reader's View: Duluth must address homeless crisis
Last year about this time, I met with Mayor Emily Larson and Human Rights Director Carl Crawford about the homeless situation in Duluth. I, sometimes tearfully, told my story and the stories of others, reminding them there is a two-year wait for a Section 8 voucher in Duluth. When...
