WHO WE ARE PROFILE: Jim McKee

What about Goshen would you like to see changed or improved?

I hope to see traffic improved all around town, but especially on Madison Street and the Kercher Road area. Most days you want to avoid the south side of town in the afternoons because of the traffic. I hope we can make improvements in the next four years.

What is Goshen’s best-kept secret?

For me it’s the Marian Hoogenboom Care House located behind the hospital. Through donations of labor and money we are able to provide cancer patients a place to stay while seeking treatment at the IU Health Center for Cancer Care at no cost to them. While Goshen residents do not benefit from this, I believe it tells people who do stay there from out of town how caring our community really is.

What has Goshen meant

to you over the years?


I left Goshen in 1978 for a new adventure. I returned in 1993 as the general manager of the Goshen Sam’s Club only planning on being here for a year or two. They say, “You can never go back,” but I did along with my children after they left the military. Everyone was very welcoming and I felt at home and glad to be back here.

I think early August is a good time to start
I think later in August would be a good time to start
I think school should start after Labor Day
