Note: Next week is last chance to raise new election issues

The last several weeks have been great for this Opinion page. Week after week we have featured a healthy collection of commentary from residents with something to say about tightly contested city and school board races.

We'd hate to see it stop, but we're getting to a point in the process when we'll need to put at least one restriction on the letters we run.

There are just two more issues between now and Election Day. Next week's Independent will be the last for letters that raise new issues about candidates or issues. Letters published in the Oct. 30 issue of the Independent should be simple statements of support or responses to previously raised issues.

We love the exchange of opinions that has taken place in recent weeks. It's what this page is here for. We hope it continues long after Nov. 4 has come and gone.
