To The Reader's Forum:
I was very happy to see that there is a concerted effort on the part of county officials and agencies to address the serious problem of poverty.
Perhaps they can help with the effort to raise the minimum wage in order to lift thousands of American families above the poverty level. They might also lend their support to funding public works so that we can bring our roads, highways, bridges and railroads up to safe standards.
