                The Town and Country newspaper is inviting candidates running in the primary election on Tuesday, May 20, to email, fax or mail their information for publication in our Candidates Section to be published on May 15.

                In addition to a short biography that includes the candidate's name, party affiliation and position being sought, the candidate should list any prior government-related, elected positions held.

                We encourage candidates to include educational, business or other credentials and experiences that help to identify their qualifications for the position.

                Most importantly, the candidate should include a brief statement outlining why he or she is seeking the position, and present a position statement on a timely subject that affects our state, county or community.          Information submitted should be less than 350 words.  Submissions greater than 350 words may be edited.                 A photo can also be included for publication.

                In addition to national and statewide races, we are inviting candidates running for an office representing constituents in our coverage area to submit their information.  That area is Berks, Bucks, Lehigh and Montgomery counties and includes the boroughs of Bally, Bechtelsville, East Greenville, Green Lane, Pennsburg, Red Hill, Quakertown and Trumbauersville; the townships of Hereford, Lower Frederick, Lower Salford, Marlborough, Milford, New Hanover, Upper Hanover, Upper Frederick, Upper Salford and Washington; and the Upper Perkiomen, Quakertown, Souderton and Boyertown school districts.

                 The deadline for submitting candidate information is 9 a.m. Friday, May 9.

                As far as Letters to the Editor regarding the upcoming May 20 primary election, they will be accepted from non-candidates up until 9 a.m. May 5 for publication in the May 8 edition. 

                Election-related Letters to the Editor from the candidates will be accepted up until 9 a.m. May 12 for publication in the May 15 edition.  Remember, letters should be 250 words or less and all other Letters to the Editor rules will apply.

                The Town and Country newspaper offers you this opportunity to share the message of your candidacy.  For candidates who want to reach out to our readers, this is a good opportunity to share your message, and it doesn't cost you a dime out of your campaign fund. 

                So, go ahead; tell our readers why they should vote for you.
