We welcome letters from members of the public on topics pertaining to Lexington and our coverage. Letters must be no more than 400 words, and shorter is better — brevity is the soul of wit. We encourage respectful discourse that does not target any individuals or groups. We reserve the right to fact-check and edit letters for length or clarity, and we do not publish anonymous letters.
We accept letters at any time and will do our best to run them in a timely fashion. Typically, we are able to share letters we receive by Wednesday at 5 p.m. in our Friday roundup two days later.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR DO NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS OF THE LEXINGTON OBSERVER. THEY ARE SEPARATE FROM OUR NEWS REPORTING.
To submit a letter to the editor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
