Letter: Good questions about child poverty, redistricting

Published: 2/11/2021 12:01:20 AM

One of the Super Bowl ads included this line of thought: “Ask a good question, get a good answer, get a better world.”

The day after the Buccaneers beat Kansas City, and the winners got a $150,000 bonus per team member and the losers got half that, Connecticut Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro was on the radio to talk about money and child poverty. The upcoming pandemic relief bill coming out of President Biden’s White House and hopefully supported in the Senate includes money that DeLauro says could cut child poverty in half in the United States. She asks, “Why not cut child poverty in half?” Good question. Good answer coming? Better world?

Speaking of good questions: Why haven’t we ended gerrymandering in New Hampshire, a bad drawing of voting districts with political gains the goal? Having a fair, nonpartisan, and transparent redistricting process that uses public meetings and doesn’t favor one party over the other is a worthy goal, is it not?

Ask a good question, get a good answer (yes, a worthy goal). That’s the winning formula to a better state and a better world.
