Dear Editor, I am very disappointed in the decision to feature a current candidate for local office on the front page, with a feature-length story, less than one month before the election. I have nothing against this candidate, however past practice in local papers has been to avoid “extra” attention on any candidate when an election is near. Given that this has occurred, may we expect to see a feature article on the opponent next week?
No impropriety intended, but our human interest profile could have run at a different time. Our apologies! – ed.
