The campaign for the Nov. 7 General Election is just about to begin. In fact, endorsements are already being issued, and letters backing candidates have already been coming in to the Gazette-Journal.
We will be keeping a close eye on those letters and ask our correspondents to help us make space for everyone by restraining themselves.
On our part, we will accept one letter per writer, from August through the election, supporting a candidate or candidates, issue or issues, appearing on the ballot, and will follow a strict limit of 300 words. If it runs past that limit, we will edit it or ask the writer to cut it down.
We will not even begin to use endorsement letters before then.
It’s going to be a busy year. We are trying to keep our space available for everyone; and we are asking our readers to respect these guidelines.
