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


Something very ugly began to happen in my community the minute my opponent, Mr. Nisley, entered the race. The atmosphere changed for the worse. I watch the news and see nothing but hate. I listen to the radio and it’s the same thing. The message of hate is out of control. Members of Mr. Nisly’s team talk about purifying the party. Mr. Nisly has been endorsed by the Gun Owners of America, of which he is very proud. Please check out the website of this organization (https://gunowners.org/) and the executive director’s affiliations. It is shocking. What is even more shocking is the fact that Mr. Nisly refused to disassociate himself from the group. I am a member of the National Rifle Association and am proud that even they have distanced themselves from the Gun Owners of America because of their radical views.

We must put a stop to the pervasive attitude of I am right and you are wrong. We have to work together to get things done. There is no room in our district or state government to be hateful. That is not who we are.

Rebecca Kubacki is the incumbent representative in Indiana District 22, which includes Kosciusko County and parts of Elkhart County. She resides in Syracuse.

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
