Letter and Statement Rules and Guidelines for Candidates and Easton Residents

Fair play: We expect candidates and supporters to stick to issues and not indulge in personal attacks on candidates. We may reject any letter or statement we think is unfair, libelous or in poor taste.

Guidelines for Letters

Letters to the editor on general election issues or supporting candidates: Letters from Easton residents on general election issues or touting a candidate or group of candidates must be 300 words or fewer.  Please include a word count with your letter and your address and phone number (this information will not be published). A person may write one letter per candidate. Deadline is Thursday, Nov. 3 at 11:59 p.m.

Guidelines for Candidates

Bios/Profiles and statements: We will publish bios/profiles of each of the candidates prior to the election. Candidates will be invited to submit a 300-word biography and 500-word statement discussing the candidate’s platform to be published the week of Oct. 24 – Oct. 31.

Candidate headshots: The Courier requests a current high resolution headshot of each of the candidates.
