Letters from lake-area residents about candidates and issues on the Nov. 5 ballot will be accepted until 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23. We are strictly enforcing our normally suggested 250-word limit for election letters. Election letters longer than 250 words WILL BE CUT!
Letters must be ORIGINAL. Those addressed or copied to other publications or appearing there will NOT be published. Election letters will be published through our Oct. 26 issue. Election letters will NOT be published in our Nov. 2 issue. However, candidates criticized in an Oct. 28 letter may respond specifically to that criticism in our Nov. 2 issue.
Your letters may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to (740) 928-7960, mailed to PO Box 1542, Buckeye Lake, OH 43008 or dropped off at our Blue Heron Boardwalk office. All letters must be signed and include an address (only community names will be published) and a daytime telephone number (phone numbers will not be published).
