No statements will be published from the Friday before Election Day through Election Day.  Statements must be factually accurate and not defamatory. Should there be questions as to the factual accuracy of a statement, the candidate will be asked to provide documentation for their claims. Should they fail to adequately do so, the statement will not be published until the candidate revises the statement accordingly.  Similarly, should a statement be deemed factually inaccurate or defamatory it will not be published and the candidate will have the option to revise their statement accordingly.  If a statement is published and later is alleged to be factually inaccurate, the statement will be temporarily removed from the site and the candidate will be asked to provide documentation for their claims.  Should they do so, the statement will be republished.  Should they fail to do so, they can revise their statement accordingly or it will remain unpublished.  Statements should be submitted on the site directly.  

Should submissions be found to be repeatedly factually inaccurate, the privilege of submitting statements and having those statements published may be revoked.

Letters to the Editor

Anyone can submit Letters to the Editor at any time up until the Friday before Election Day (last submission to be accepted by Thursday, November 2, 2017 11:59 p.m.). Publication of Letters to the Editor is at the sole discretion of the editor. No letter will be published from Sunday before the election through Election Day. Letters must be factually accurate and not defamatory. They must not be anonymous.  The letter writer must submit their phone number with their letter.  The phone number will not be published – it will be used for verification purposes.  Should the letter be deemed inaccurate or defamatory, the letter will not be published and the letter writer will be offered the opportunity to either provide documentation for their claims or to revise their letter accordingly.  Letters should be submitted directly on the site.
