READER POINT OF VIEW: Kubacki says there's no room for hate at Statehouse

I would like to thank my family for giving me such support and strength through this most despicable (Indiana District 22 Representative) campaign. They have had to endure the barrage of spiteful and hateful letters to the editor. My family members wanted to respond. It was my mother who objected. She may have been a migrant worker, but she set very high standards for the Espinoza family. The Espinozas take the high road. I could not be more proud of how the Espinoza family has shown such dignity and grace.

I want to especially thank my daughter for the beautiful letter she wrote about me. She wrote it from her heart and I love her for it. To have hateful (District 22 challenger Curt) Nisly supporters write to the editor with vicious attacks on my child is nothing short of evil. Mr. Nisly says that going after my voting record is fair game. What vote did my daughter ever cast that they should go after?

I want to thank my mother who worked so hard so her children could achieve the American Dream. There was a time in this country when if you worked hard and made something of yourself it was admired. To have her read in the local paper that her daughter is being called a migrant worker who has become arrogant or referenced by the phrase “Hot Tamale” by Monica Boyer (an Indiana Tea Party leader) on Facebook is despicable. I don’t care how you try to spin it, it is what it is. To have to be mocked by Boyer as the so-called “mother of Indiana” is just as despicable. Is standing up to keep children safe when they are in daycare facilities — so parents will never have to receive the phone call 20 other parents received, telling them that their child has died at the daycare facility — reason to replace me?

Poll

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
