Posted on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 7:47 am

The Grundy County Herald is offering candidates on the ballot for the upcoming August 2 election an opportunity to place a free announcement in the paper. This announcement is in addition to the announcements that ran previous to the May election. along with candidates who did not place an announcement before the May election, candidates who placed a free announcement  with the Herald before the May election are encouraged to submit a new one. 


Candidates may submit a 150 word announcement for consideration for publication. The announcement must be submitted in a word document via email to by Thursday, July 12, 2018, at 12 p.m. All submissions must include a head shot (JPEG only) attached to the same email as the free announcement. Announcements sent in a PDF or by Google Docs will not be accepted.

  • Please attach a read receipt to the email submission to ensure we receive it by the deadline.
  • Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be printed on the “Meet the Candidates” page.


In addition, as with the previous “Meet the Candidates” page, we are offering a special rate for this publication only for advertising. In the previous “Meet the Candidates” edition, the advertising was placed opposite the free announcements and the two page spread was attractive and interesting to our readers. Please contact Tori at 931-592-2781 for additional advertising information.
