Election Season Letter Policy
Dear Readers: During the current election season, The Covington News will not publish letters to the editor from political candidates.
We also will not publish letters written specifically to promote the candidacy of individual candidates or to attack specific candidates on a personal level.
We do welcome letters addressing issues of importance that arise during the campaign. We also welcome editorial cartoons. Please include your full name, hometown and phone number so we can verify each letter. We ask that letters be 350 words or less. They should be limited to one topic on issues of public interest and may be edited for content, grammar, spelling and length. Letters may be sent to the news in various ways:
