Editorial: Endorsement letters

With the election just five weeks away, it is time to think about who will win our vote when we go to the polls. In Wilton there is just one local contested race, that of the 26th state senate district. Further up the ballot there are contested races for U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, and President. The races for state representative in Wilton’s 143rd and 125th districts, as well as the registrars of voters, are uncontested.
Letters endorsing a candidate or group of candidates must be 100 words or fewer. Longer letters will be rejected; shorter letters will get preference if space becomes an issue. Please include a word count with your letter and a daytime phone number.
A person may write one letter per candidate. We will not publish more than one letter from the same person in a single issue nor will we publish letters from candidates regarding their own races.
No letter critical of candidates will be published in the Nov. 3 issue, the last before the election.
All letters are due no later than noon on Tuesday; later submissions will be processed to run in the following week’s issue. Please send letters via email to editor@wiltonbulletin. com.
All letters will be placed on WiltonBulletin.com. Letters endorsing candidates in uncontested races will be placed online only. We may reject any letter or statement we think is unfair, libelous or in poor taste.
