The Wilson County News is offering candidates in the upcoming May 29 Democratic and Republican Party primary elections an opportunity to reach voters by participating in the “Candidates’ Forum.” There is no charge for inclusion in the forum, which will be published May 9.
The deadline for submissions is noon on Thursday, May 3.
This feature is offered to declared candidates in races in which Wilson County voters will be able to cast ballots.
Each candidate’s submission is limited to 200 words; those in a résumé format are not acceptable.
Each submission should provide a response to these questions:
•What is your personal, professional, and political background?
•Why are you running for this office?
•What do you plan to accomplish if elected?
The Wilson County News will accept only submissions that are legibly handwritten, typed, or computer-printed. They may be delivered in person to the newspaper offices, postal-mailed, or faxed. All must include the candidate’s signature. Submissions may be emailed to email@example.com or by other electronic devices; however, a hard copy must also be sent, bearing the candidate’s signature.
Entries will be subject to editing as needed for length, basic grammar, spelling, good taste, and libel. Please, no bashing of opponents.
A photograph may accompany each submission. Candidates may send a recent, publication-quality photograph, or they may stop by the Wilson County News offices in Floresville to have a staff member take a photo.
Deliver or send submissions to Candidates’ Forum, Wilson County News, 1012 C St., Floresville, TX 78114; or fax to 830-393-3219.
