Letter - Think about children, not politics

To the editor:

Now that those frivolous child care lawsuits have been thrown out of court, we can focus on educating our children.

The DFL Legislature focused on early education and so should we. They gave every Minnesota family all-day kindergarten, provided new investments in our schools and improved access to child care through additional child care grants.

Allowing child care providers the right to decide if they want a union was another investment in early education. Child care providers teach our children and prepare them for school. We know what is best for our profession and now it's time for us to vote. I hope everyone will join me in thinking about our children and not politics.
