With Knox County Primary elections just around the corner, and as early voting begins Wednesday, April 13, before Primary election day Tuesday, May 3, farragutpress welcomes non-hostile opinions, either in Letters to the Editor — or in a more generic form, without using anyone’s name, in Presstalk — about any and all candidates seeking to retain, or obtain, public office.
Please remember, however, about our two-week cut-off period for such candidate opinions. Our Thursday, April 21, issue would be the last in which to voice such opinions on these pages.
However, if a given Letter to the Editor takes to task a given candidate in our April 21 issue, the candidate attacked — and he or she only — would be allowed to answer that attack in our April 28 issue. But the only allowed response would be to answer the attack specifically — nothing else.
We welcome you feelings and thoughts, as expressed on these pages, in the coming weeks.
And everyone is encouraged to express themselves with their vote.
