A letter to the editor is a great way to tell your story about why the passage of Issue [#] is critical to the community. The letter to editor section is one of the most widely read parts of a newspaper, both in print and online, and can help raise awareness of the importance of Issue [#] passing in order to continue vital services to our community. The most important aspects of a letter to the editor are: 1) It be short, usually under 150 words; 2) it tells a personal story, in this case how Summit DD has helped you; and 3) It ends with an action, or asking people to vote yes on Issue [#].
You can submit your letter to the editor using the submission guidelines outlined below for each media outlet. We’ve assembled some sample letter to editors to get you started!
It’s that easy! And, it’s that essential to helping us pass this critical levy. Thank you for your support!
