Reader's View: Stauber should step in to help laid-off miners

We are part of The Trust Project.

With unemployment benefits for 410 laid-off miners now expired, where has Congressman Pete Stauber been? His campaign slogan included protecting our values, but little apparently has been done to help 410 of his constituents (“ Unemployment benefits expire for laid-off miners ,” Nov. 29).

Stauber could get off his backside and fight for these workers. He could act as a go-between to help get the royalty dispute straightened out between Cleveland-Cliffs and Mesabi Trust. That would be the job of a congressman working for his district.

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.
