Gov 2017

  • To the editor: In the not too distant past, so-called President-elect Donald Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp.”
  • In the last few years, there’s been much discussion about the number of manufacturing and other blue collar jobs that have been lost to outsourcing, enabled by free trade agreements like NAFTA.
