On city no longer using Janesville schools as polling sites: An unnecessary change. Schools are paid for by taxpayer dollars. Churches are not. It makes good sense to make use of public facilities for public use. Public schools have been used for decades in Janesville as polling places, and I am not aware of one incident that put any children in danger.
- A necessary change.
On 11 area school districts considering referendums: Legalize cannabis and use that money to help fund schools while helping people that could really use the medicine to improve their quality of life.
On Sunday editorial, “Steil needs to step up and offer specifics”: I would just like to know where the candidates stand on Social Security and Medicare. Is it all right for the government to take from these funds to balance or pay for other projects?
- The Racine County GOP and Racine/Kenosha Young Republicans are sponsoring a forum for four of the congressional candidates at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 21. All the details are on our website at www.racinegop.org.

- This editorial is right on point. Steil has been phoning in his campaign and lacks real substance. A master of platitudes, the attorney Bryan Steil is far from unique and has no real plan on creating bold reforms. He would be a member of the swamp, which D.C. is looking to purge. For real substance look no further than Nick Polce!

On Parkland, Florida, students’ June 22 visit to Ryan’s Janesville office: I’m from Florida now, but I was born and raised in Wisconsin. Twenty years ago, I would have voted for Paul Ryan, but he has been such a selfish disappointment to the state of Wisconsin and the entire country.
- What a joke. Go home David Hogg. You are a fake and phony, and no one in America cares what you have to say about anything.
- Thank you, kids, for coming and showing that you care!
