As 2014 is a mid-term election year, the Fillmore County Journal would like to remind both readers and contributors and potential future contributors of the commentary/letter to the editor policy that is in effect.

Any party who submits and has a commentary or letter to the editor published (at the discretion of the publisher) may not have a subsequent submission published in the Fillmore County Journal for a minimum of thirty (30) days following the previously published commentary editorial.

The limit for the a ‘letter to the editor’ has a maximum value of 300 words, where anything over that value is considered a ‘guest commentary.’ Submissions are required to have the signature of the author in addition to the town & state of which they reside. A photo is strongly suggested to accompany any guest commentary.

The Fillmore County Journal reserves the right to edit, alter, or exclude any submitted editorial content.
