Reader wrestles with question: “Should ‘The Squad’ just shut up?”

A few months ago, a good friend whose political wisdom I respect, stated she just wished “the Squad” (the progressive Democratic congresswomen of color elected in 2018) would shut up.  She asked whether their vocal challenges to the conventional Democratic Party leaders and larger political system undermines the need for a unified Democratic Party’s plan to defeat Donald Trump.

Experience building relationships key reason to vote Harrington for DA

To the editor,

Will experience decide the District Attorney race? I think it should—and that is why I support Andrea Harrington.
