Candidates for special elections in Itasca and northern St. Louis counties are invited to submit a statement to Hometown Focus sharing their background, qualifications, reasons for running for office, and positions on important issues. Candidates must focus on their own merits and should not speak negatively about other individuals.
Submissions should be no longer than 500 words. Candidate statements will be published in the Friday, October 22 and Friday, October 29 editions of Hometown Focus. The deadline is one week prior to publication.
Send your candidate statement and a photo (optional) to email@example.com. Statements can also be mailed to or dropped off at 401 6th Ave. N., Virginia, MN 55792. Call 218-741-0106 with questions.
HTF does not have a letters to the editor section, so please do not send letters of endorsement, as we are unable to publish them. Candidate statements are not paid advertisements, nor do they indicate endorsement by Hometown Focus or any of its employees.
