Seeking Candidate Information

            We realize that election seasons are busy for candidates and we encourage them to take every opportunity to get their message to the voters.

            Too often the people that candidates are counting on to get them elected are forgotten during fund-raising events, rallies, and meet-the-candidate gatherings.  The only thing they seem to get enough of is "robo-calls."  And, who doesn't like to be bothered with taking one of those calls, usually at your busiest time of the day.

            More and more, voters are selecting to ignore the automatic party choice and choosing to learn about the candidates and make up their own minds.  The political climate is volatile and candidates must sell themselves to the voters and can no longer rely solely on others to do it for them..  

            So once again, the Town and Country newspaper is inviting candidates running in the Primary Election on Tuesday, May 15, to email, fax or mail their information for publication in our Candidates Section to be published on May 10, 2018.

            In addition to a short biography that includes the candidate's name, party affiliation and position being sought, the candidate should list any prior government-related and elected positions held.

           We encourage candidates to include educational, business or other credentials and experiences that help to identify their qualifications for the position.

            Most importantly, the candidate should include a brief statement outlining why he or she is seeking the position, and present a position statement on a timely subject that affects our state, county or community.  Information submitted should be less than 350 words.  Submissions greater than 350 words may be edited.  A photo can also be included for publication.  The Town and Country provides the Candidates Section as a service to voters and there is no cost for a candidate to publish information that adheres to the guidelines.

            The deadline for submitting candidate information is noon on Friday, May 4.

            Letters to the editor regarding the upcoming general election will be accepted from non-candidates until noon on April 30 for publication in the May 3 edition.

            Election-related Letters to the Editor from candidates will be accepted until noon on May 4 for publication in the May 10 edition.

            Remember, letters should be 300 words or less and all other letters to the editor rules will apply.

            Information can be emailed to
