Monday is the deadline for candidates in the May 4 city and school elections to submit an essay detailing why voters should vote for them. Monday also is the deadline for supporters to submit a paid endorsement letter.
Candidates may submit an essay of up to 500 words, along with a photo, detailing why voters should vote for them. No personal or party attacks against opponents will be allowed. Again, these essays are being accepted for print until the end of the business day Monday.
Paid endorsement letters also may be submitted through the end of the business day Monday and should explain why a particular candidate is most qualified. Personal or party attacks will not be permitted. For consideration, all letters must be original and include the writer’s name, address and telephone number for verification. All submissions may be edited for clarity, taste and libel.
The paid letters will publish on Tuesdays and Saturdays and appear adjacent to the Opinion page. All paid letters will be identified as such.
Paid endorsement letters may be submitted via a form found online at www.dentonrc.com/opinion.
Essays may be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to the Denton Record-Chronicle at: Letters to the editor, P.O. Box 369, Denton, TX 76202.
No letters or essays will be accepted after Monday’s deadline — no exceptions.
