POLICY REGARDING POLITICAL LETTERS It is once again time to remind candidates, their campaign managers and supporters that all politi- cal ads must be paid in advance of publication in the N/Warren Town and County News. In the past, we have received Letters to the Ed- itor supporting candidates for various offices. A well organized campaign manager can have various people lined up to write "Letters to tl)e Editor" to support candidates or be negative toward candi- dates and their issues. During previous campaigns, this newspaper has received several of these from various Iowa communities throughout the state, in addition to letters from area residents. These types of letters, even local ones, will not be printed unless they are prepaid as an ad. The ad must also carry a disclaimer with the name of the person paying for the letter/ad. The cost will be the same as for any of our advertising, $3.50 per colunm inch. No more than two letters will be accepted from any one person during the period of a campaign. Due to the number of letters we receive, letters - unless they are related to a Norwalk only election, will be printed as space allows. Letters must be signed by the person writing the letter ( not typed) and must include a day telephone number where they can be reached in the event we have a ques- tion. Letters not abiding by these rules will not be printed. As in all ads, we reserve the right to ac- cept or refuse any or all advertising/letters. Letters expressing pro- or con- sentiments for ei- ther candidates or issues that the public will be voting on during an official election will fall into this category and must be paid in advance.
