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.

  • 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.
