Editor’s words counterproductive to well-being of community

To the editor:

Cancel my subscription to the Newton Daily News and refund my unused pre-paid fee. I just read the article in the April 28 edition of the Des Moines Register titled, “Iowa Newspaper Editor Criticizes the ‘Gaystapo.’” The article “outed” Bob Eschliman as the editor in question.

In a time that we are working to promote Newton as a welcoming community, a great place to do business and raise a family, I find Mr. Eschliman’s commentary in poor taste and counterproductive to our community’s growth and well-being. Mr. Eschliman is entitled to his personal beliefs — I just don’t want to see them publicized in the Des Moines Register and Newton Daily News.
