Valley Journal Letters Policy
Letters regarding candidates or issues in the Nov. 8 election must be submitted by 5
p.m. Friday, Oct. 21 for the Oct. 26 issue. No late letters will be accepted. Only letters of rebuttal from candidates may be printed in the Nov. 2 issue.
Letters to the editor are welcome. The content is the opinion of the letter writer and not the newspaper. The decision to publish letters is made by the editor.
Letters must be 350 words or less. A writer will only be published twice per month.
Letters may be edited for content or length, or may not be published if considered libelous, in poor taste, spiteful, self-promotional or of limited interest to the general readership. Space limitations also dictate when or if letters will be published.
Letters must be signed by the author and name, address and phone number must be included – phone number is for verification purposes only. Letters from organizations must include the name of at least one author.
Exceptions may be made for guest columns on a case-by-case basis. Please limit “thank you” letters to four people/organizations or less. Letters must be submitted by Friday at 5 p.m. to publish the following week.
