The Wilson County News is offering candidates in the municipal and local issue elections May 11 an opportunity to reach voters by participating in our “Candidates’ Forum.” There is no charge for inclusion in the forum, which will be published April 24.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 17.

This feature is offered to declared candidates facing opposition in races in which area voters will be able to cast ballots. These include:

•Municipal elections in La Vernia, Poth, Stockdale, and Elmendorf

•School board elections in La Vernia and Falls City

•Wilson Memorial Hospital District board places.

Each candidate’s submission is limited to 200 words; those in a résumé format are not acceptable.

Please respond 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 nkilbey-smith@wcn-online.com or by other electronic devices; however, a hard copy must also be sent, bearing the candidate’s signature. Signed hard copies by fax are acceptable.

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.
