New candidates invited to submit stories by Oct. 1

Monday, September 24, 2012

Footballs are flying through the crisp autumn air and soon Putnam County voters will be returning to the election booth.

We at the Banner Graphic want our readers to be able to make informed decisions on their choices for who will lead Putnam County government and local school boards for the next four years or more. But to do so, we will need the help of the candidates.

Any candidate for school board in the November election, and any candidate who has entered a countywide race since the primary election, is eligible to submit a story about himself or herself for publication on the front page of the Banner Graphic.

The deadline for submitting such articles will noon on Monday, Oct. 1.

We ask that candidates limit the length of their submission to 300 words. As always, we reserve the right to edit all stories for style, clarity and accuracy.

Candidate stories can be emailed (the preferred method) to the Banner Graphic at news@bannergraphic.com or mailed to Banner Graphic, P.O. Box 509, Greencastle, IN 46135. They can also be hand-delivered to the office at 100 N. Jackson St. or faxed to the Banner Graphic at 653-2063.

A color headshot photograph should be provided with your written submission.

It should also be noted that no candidate introduction stories will be run in a Monday edition.

Note: The nature of the Internet makes it impractical for our staff to review every comment. If you feel that a comment is offensive, please Login or Create an account first, and then you will be able to flag a comment as objectionable. Please also note that those who post comments on bannergraphic.com may do so using a screen name, which may or may not reflect a website user's actual name. Readers should be careful not to assign comments to real people who may have names similar to screen names. Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

Whatever happened to the Banner-Graphic conducting interviews of the candidates? They say they reserve the right to edit all stories for style, clarity and accuracy. So why don't just conduct an interview in the first place?
