Reader's View: Working together is the key to progress

Candidates or incumbents not willing to move forward working together to take this kind of positive action don't deserve our votes.

Darby Neustel's piece on a positive way of dealing with climate change together is a model for all of America's current crises (" In Duluth, elsewhere, a just enegy transition has to start slow " by Darby Neustel, Duluth News Tribune, June 8).
Whether health care, housing, homelessness, hunger or climate change — working together is a positive way is the key to progress. This time of approaching elections is perfect for asking candidates if they are willing to work together to solve these problems. One specific example: Will you work to extend the expanded Child Tax Credit that lifted 4 million children out of poverty? (As soon as it expired these children fell back into poverty.) Now is the time to ask questions like this and vote accordingly. Candidates or incumbents not willing to move forward working together to take this kind of positive action don't deserve our votes.

What to read next
Stauber’s accusations about Biden and the Keystone XL project and oil permits are just two examples of what I feel are fabrications and inaccuracies in Stauber’s mailings.
I have a question.
My June 18 morning coffee and reading of the News Tribune resulted in such positive reads.
While Stauber was a police officer, if he had collected money from citizens or businesses, he would have most likely been guilty of a serious crime.
