Candidates running for city, county or state office will be offered space for one free candidacy announcement and photo each prior to the Primary Election (May 8) and General Election (Nov. 6).
Candidacy announcements MUST be emailed, along with a separate jpeg color photo, to, and should be no longer than 800 words.
Announcements should be kept to information about the candidate and his/her platform and will not include any derogatory comments about the incumbent or opponent.
Candidacy announcements will be printed in the order in which they are received on the Opinion Page of the Mineral Daily News Tribune.
All candidacy announcements MUST be received at least two weeks before the election, and no announcements will be published within one week of the election.
Following publication of each free announcement, all photos, endorsements and/or stories will be paid advertisements and our advertising representatives will be happy to work with each candidate to create an advertising package to help you get the word out about your campaign. The one exception will be photos and/or stories of incumbent office-holders, which will run by virtue of their position.
