The Gazette welcomes letters to the editor about public interest issues.
Discourse and debate are hallmarks of a democracy. The letters must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will no longer accept handwritten or typed letters.
All letters must include the writer’s name, address and daytime phone number. The Gazette may call the number to verify authorship of the letter. Anonymous letters, form letters, letters over 650 words or those without a phone number will be discarded. In addition, letters that consist of personal attacks on another letter writer or contain profanity will not be used. Please be civil.
The Gazette reserves the right to condense and correct letters without altering intent. All letters become the property of The Gazette.
