The Auckland City Harbour News welcomes letters to the editor.
Letters should not exceed 250 words and must have full name, residential address and phone number. Hard copy letters must have a legible signature. Only your name and suburb are published. Initials, pen names or email attachments are not accepted. We prefer letters about local issues. Open letters and poetry are seldom used. We discourage personal attacks – try to advance the debate.
All letters are assumed to be for publication unless marked otherwise. The may be abridged or withheld. Letters may be edited for sense, style, brevity, good taste and to protect the rights and reputations of others. Opinions expressed must be genuinely held by the letter writer. Letters may be referred to others for reply. Write to The Editor at: Mail: Auckland City Harbour News, Private Bag 568910, Dominion Rd, Auckland Fax: 630-5432 Email: clletters@snl. co.nz.
