As we approach the May 20 primary election, the East Penn Press and the Salisbury Press, in the interest of fairness, has halted the publication of columns by local government officials and letters to the editor submitted by those running for office.
The last week for publication of columns by local government officials was the April 16 edition.
We will, of course, continue to cover the local races, in news stories generated by our own reporters.
Letters to the Editor, written by members of the community or by a candidate needed to be received by The Press no later than 5 p.m. May 2.
