Reader's View: Post-election, demand ladders out of poverty

That means whoever is elected, we use our voices to ask them to make a difference for families in Duluth and across the nation.

Excellent editorial about the importance of voting and working together for a better future (Our View: “ Vote for our shared values this Election Day ,” Nov. 8).

That means whoever is elected, we use our voices to ask them to make a difference for families in Duluth and across the nation.

Time to end millions of families struggling in poverty. Time to renew the expanded Child Tax Credit that ended 40% of child poverty. Time to pass a renters’ tax credit to help the 11 million renters paying more than 50% of their income for rent. Time to pass these ladders out of poverty. The world’s richest country can afford it and our voices can make it happen for a better future for all.

Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the News Tribune attempts to publish all letters of opinion meeting our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility. Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous, or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive local view columns of about 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
Email submissions to: letters@duluthnewscom.
