Editor’s Note Regarding Letters


Here are the rules for Letters to the Editor during the remaining four weeks until election day. As always, The Times is pleased to publish letters from Islanders about the issues and candidates that will be decided on November 6.

Letters from candidates, spokesmen for interest groups, political parties, campaign organizations, or organized political action groups will not be published. Of course, they may appear as paid political advertisements.

Letters that contain allegations of misconduct directed at a candidate, a campaign, or an interest or political action group will not be published after October 25, to allow rebuttals to appear in the November 1 edition.
