May 6 is final edition before vote

Last week, we bemoaned the lack of reader letters regarding the proposed Glencoe-Silver Lake (GSL) building bond election.
That apparently sparked a few people to put their pens to paper and their fingers to their keyboards, and we received several letters to the editor this week. We appreciate them; those letters tell us that our readers are indeed vested in their communities and their issues.
That said, we need to remind you now of our election letters to the editor policy. The Chronicle has long held a policy regarding letters to the editor in the final edition before an election. With the proposed bond being voted upon May 12, that final edition will be Wednesday, May 6.
Because there is no time for readers to respond to issues raised in letters in that final edition before an election, space will only be reserved for letter writers who directly address issues raised in previous letters or editorials. No new issues can be raised in the May 6 edition.
Sometimes, it’s a tough call as to what is a direct response and what is a new issue. The various issues surrounding such votes can be both murky and overlapping. But we still reserve the right to try to sort that out to the best of our ability.
Again, thank you for your participation on the editorial pages of The Chronicle, and be sure to vote May 12.
