Mayor deserves more than just a thank-you

The mayor of Goshen deserves more than a simple thank-you for what he did at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. This is exactly what the city of Goshen needs to help their people. This judgment has opened a lot of new doors for people trying to make it in this economy, myself included.

Words can’t express the appreciation I have for Mr. Allan Kauffman. This man fought for all of us on the (Goshen Housing Authority) program or just trying to get help with assistance. If I could hand this man some kind of award for his caring attitude and generosity for the people of Goshen I would and we should.

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
