  • 5/8/2019 Dear Editor,
    As a former US Marine Veteran and FBI Special Agent for 28 years and Father of 4 children, all Purdue Graduates, I have witnessed great sacrifice and dedication by Federal Employee.
    Federal employees serve and protect us every day at every level across the country and in our community. At no time was this more evident than during the 35-day partial government shutdown earlier this year. 
    From ensuring safe air travel to regulating new medicines to maintaining a safe food supply to processing Social Security checks, civil servants are everywhere, yet invisibly so. And, contrary to popular belief, 85 percent of the federal workforce is located outside of Washington, DC. 
    When natural disasters strike, they provide relief and help us rebuild. When mass shootings take place, they enter harm's way and care for the wounded. And, when once-eradicated viruses reappear, they investigate public health crises. Whether they are in the public eye or active behind the scenes, civil servants take pride in working for something bigger than themselves. 
  • 5/8/2019 Dear Editor,
    Writer Ginger Claremohr wrote an excellent article “To vaccinate or not to vaccinate” depicting the situation of parents today when it comes to their children’s future health by vaccinating. It seems the medical industry tries to make children more perfect by creating vaccinations to add to their bodies.
    My grandfather who was born in the 1880’s said the less you inject into your body the healthier you will be. There are 70 doses of 16 vaccinations imposed on our children today. As a child I had only two vaccinations; the polio vaccine and the small pox. My generation became naturally immune to all childhood diseases by either being exposed or enduring the disease. This natural immunity is with my generation today and I believe we should go back to natural immunity for all children.
  • 5/4/2019 For the past weeks and months, it’s been the honor of my life to seek your vote to be the mayor of my hometown, Noblesville. In home meetings and coffees, community events and public gatherings, on the square or on the debate stage, you have taken time to get to know me and the other candidates. You’ve asked hard questions to understand my vision for Noblesville’s Next Chapter. And thank you for allowing me to ask you questions about what you felt was important to our city.
    I am the best leader to take Noblesville into its next chapter. My time spent working at the local, state and federal levels will be vital as we forge key partnerships to build an even better Noblesville. I am proud to be endorsed in our campaign by Governor Eric Holcomb and Congresswoman Susan Brooks...
  • 5/4/2019 Since we launched this campaign more than 7 months ago, I have been stressing how important this election is. Decisions are being made now that will affect the way Noblesville develops for generations to come. It’s important that we get it right. For that to happen, the citizens must be much more engaged than they’ve been permitted to be for the past several years. The trash fee, the Nickel Plate, Seminary Park, The Levinson are all examples of city hall making deals in the dark and including the people afterwards. It’s time to swing open the doors of city hall, welcome the public back in, and unleash the power of the people so Noblesville can finally start achieving its potential...
  • 5/4/2019 This is an exciting time for our community. For the first time in a generation, we have an open contest for mayor — no incumbent, no presumptive heir, just four candidates who have submitted their applications for this position. And now it is time for the citizens of Noblesville to decide who to hire as the next mayor to serve our city. I believe my proven leadership and experience make me the right leader — the right woman — at the right time for Noblesville. 
    First, as mayor, I will respect yesterday. I grew up two blocks from the square. Nothing says home to me more than walking south on 9th Street to the square. However, the square of today is not the same as when I sold Girl Scout cookies or delivered newspapers, and we can’t, and don’t, want to wrap it in shrink wrap. But we do need to ensure as things evolve around our authentic historic square that we don’t detract from the embodiment of our hometown values that draws people to our community.
  • 4/19/2019 Dear Editor,
    I am writing to endorse Julia Church Kozicki whom I feel is the best-qualified candidate for Mayor of Noblesville. I have had the pleasure of knowing Julia on a professional and personal level for over a decade. During that time, we have served together on the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation board and have been Tri Kappa sisters. I have always found her to be a great leader. She is patient and takes her time when working with others. She is thorough in her research, has tremendous listening skills, and gives great thought in her response and delivery when speaking in a group or one on one. As a leader, Julia makes sure to address everyone's needs, is inclusive to newcomers and life-long members, and truly enjoys working to achieve a common goal...
  • 4/19/2019 Dear Editor,
    In the spirit of fellow Hoosier David Letterman here is our campaigns top ten list, my case for why I am the right choice to serve the people of Noblesville. I am grateful for the opportunity to make my case and humbly ask for your vote. Thank you.
    1). I choose to live here and have for the last 32 plus years. I’m emotionally invested in Noblesville. I care deeply about the people that live here, what happens to us and how we are governed. I have vested roots here and this is where my people live and are growing up/old. I raised my family and made my life here. I have family in Noblesville from age 94 to age twelve months. I am passionate about the community where we live our lives not only for my family but for all our neighbors...
  • 4/19/2019 Dear Noblesville Community,
    Recently I have seen and heard remarks regarding Chris Jensen’s journey in his pursuit of serving as our next mayor. As someone who highly values trust in the integrity of leadership, I understand the concerns I have heard. In running against Chris four years ago, one of my top concerns in him representing and serving Noblesville was in regards to his campaign’s financial contributions. I was also concerned that he was part of what I refer to as “the good ole boy” network and was being groomed to just do as donors and long-term representatives dictate. Neither of these conjectures were true of Chris then. And neither of them is true of him today...

  • 4/1/2019 Dear Editor,
    Do you remember what made America great? So often, as we are enjoying life in today's world, we forget, or seldom think about our heritage. A few years ago, as I began writing a book, I took a look back into the past and found, in my amazement, that much of what made America great, has long been forgotten. I was so captivated by it, I could not quit writing, and so today I present to you my book; He Called Himself a Barnstormer. For those who would like to read a true story about this nation, I will be at the Barnes and Noble Book Store in Noblesville signing my book Saturday, April 6 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
    -Charlotte J. Reynolds,
