Filing deadline for upcoming school board elections in Mission and Sharyland is March 5 and 6, respectively. It is the policy of the Progress Times that the filing deadline is also the deadline to submit candidacy announcements for the news section of this newspaper.
In accordance with this newspaper’s policy, we will not publish political announcements submitted to our office after the filing deadline for that particular election, other than paid advertisements.
The deadline to submit announcements by candidates running in the March primary is 5 p.m., March 5 for Mission and 5 p.m. on March 6 for Sharyland candidates.
Timely candidacy announcements are published in the news section free of charge. The candidate is allowed to include anything they wish relative to their qualifications, education, career and family background, as well as the vision relative to the office they seek.
Disparaging statements about one’s opponent are not appropriate for such announcements and will not be published.
Announcements are subject to editing for libel and excessive length.
Candidates may drop off their announcement, along with a photo, at our office, 1217 N. Conway Ave., Mission, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidates are asked to include the name of the person submitting the announcement and a daytime telephone number.blog comments powered by Disqus
