Reader's View: In Duluth, ‘the little people are getting nothing’

Some streets get worked on far more often than others, it seems

Right now it seems to me that Duluth is a city of upscale housing and parking lots and poor streets in certain parts of the city — while the little people are getting nothing.

Affordable housing has either been torn down for parking lots (in the hospital district, as one example) or has been turned into upscale housing (along Fourth Street, as an example).

Also, some streets get worked on far more often than others, it seems. Some streets can’t even get their potholes filled.
