We do not publish individual consumer complaints about specific businesses. While we do not publish letters from groups endorsing political candidates, we will carry letters discussing candidates and campaign issues.

All material is subject to editing before publication. Letters exceeding 250 words will be edited for length, and we reserve the right to withhold letters which are abusive, malicious or potentially libelous.
