Candidate Endorsement Policy

When approaching an upcoming election season we want to make an important distinction regarding candidate endorsements.

With a free distribution in excess of 60,000 homes, our papers are inundated every election cycle with candidate endorsements. The only source of revenue our community publications receive to offset the cost of print, delivery and overhead is paid notices and advertisements. All candidate endorsements must now run either in the form of an advertisement or a paid endorsement notice and include the name of the individual making the endorsement. The paid endorsement notice can be purchased in three sizes — a quick 50 words or less for $15; a 51-175 word endorsement for $50 or a 176-300 word endorsement for $75. A paid advertisement will be based on standard advertising rates taking into consideration size and frequency according to the current rate card at the open advertising rate.
