Letters to the editor: Keep them civil

Editorials

Election season is right around the corner and already the political letters are coming in. This year promises to be particularly contentious, so the Pilot will pay extra attention to the tone and content of these letters. 

The main purpose of the letters section is to provide a forum for any and all community perspectives. We believe that such views can and should be presented in a civil manner, with the focus on the issues, not individual letter writers. We are not interested in letters that only incite and antagonize rather than debate the issues. Readers tell us they feel the same.
