This is the final notice for Democratic and Republican candidates to submit their free announcement. All announcements are due by 12 p.m., March 9, 2018. No announcements will be accepted for publication after this time.
All announcements must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The announcement must be in an MS Word document attached to the email and is limited to 180 words. In addition, each candidate may attach a head shot to run with their announcement. Head shots must be in JPEG format and attached to the same email as the announcement.
Free announcements will run on a “Meet the Candidates” page in the Grundy County Herald in March.
We recognize that only the Grundy County Democratic Party will participate in the Primary Election on May 1, 2018. Republicans held a caucus earlier this year, and their nominated candidates will face the winners of the May 1 Democratic Primary in the August General Election. In running free announcements for both parties in March, one candidate will not have an advantage over another (which could occur if Republican candidate announcements were run closer to the General Election). Including both Democratic and Republican candidates on a “Meet the Candidates” page, readers will be able to easily see where all candidates stand on issues.
