Reminder on political letters

A reminder to our readers that letters of a political nature are not published in the week before the election on Nov. 2, a policy that has been previously published for weeks on this page.

The reason for this policy is we do not allow letters which make disparaging remarks about a candidate within mere days of the vote, with no opportunity for that candidate to respond. In this issue, we will allow each candidate to tell you about themselves in their own words without editing or censorship in the news pages of the Pioneer Journal. On this opinion page, we also include our own opinions about which candidates we favor, and you can choose to accept or reject those endorsements, but we choose to keep the endorsements positive. It's still your choice, and we respect that.
