Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Editor's note: With the election on Tuesday and no rebuttal time remaining, and in the interest of equal fairness to all by publicizing names, LDN is making this statement:

The candidates listed here are current board members who sent the postal card referenced. CEL school district residents also received another postal card advertisement with names of five other candidates seeking positions, none of whom are currently on the board: Jeff Brooks, Tish Podunajec, Jason Toft, Lori Birnbaum and Randy Wolf. There is one other candidate on the ballot who did not affiliate with either of these groups, is not on the board currently and did not send out a postal card: Josh Long. Eleven candidates are seeking six board seats.
