The Review’s longstanding policy is to limit political letters to 200 words. The newspaper has let that slip in the past couple of issues, but in the future (and with the official candidate filing period for the November general election now open), we’re going to begin limiting political use of 550-word Citizen’s Views to the candidates themselves and ask community members to support their candidates through the use of 200-word letters to the editor.

As always, The Review’s policy is to promote civil dialogue, so the newspaper is once again asking folks to use their 200 words to explain why they’re voting FOR someone and not to trash opposing candidates. Your help in keeping things civil would be most appreciated and will help make the Opinion pages what they are truly meant to be: a public forum for free and open debate.
