Seattle Times letters to the editor

Scaling the income ladder

Republican politics needed

Lynne Varner’s column states that a number of factors drive success, or lack thereof, including education and family conditions and thriving communities and cities. [“Scaling the income ladder: the geography of success,” Opinion, July 26.]

Varner’s solution is to break through barriers by offering better economic conditions to the parents of struggling, low-income students.

Therein lies the catch! Do you offer them the liberal, socialistic approach that has led to the likes of Chicago and Detroit or support a more capitalistic approach?

Most cities with high rates of poverty have a history of not electing Republican mayors.

Dick Applestone, Bellevue
