    Republican Journal Letters to the Editor

    Deadline for letters is Friday at 5 p.m. for consideration for the following Thursday's issue. Send to: editor@villagesoup.com. Anonymous letters will not be published. Please include your name, town and contact information. The Republican Journal encourages letters of no more than 350 words; longer letters may not run or may be edited. We will not publish letters that violate standards of good taste, make libelous allegations, endorse commercial products or attack a specific private individual or business. We discourage “thank-you” letters that list benefactors. For reasons of fairness, and to allow time for rebuttal or correction, we will not publish election letters in the issue immediately prior to the election.
