Gazette policy regarding political announcements

The New Albany Gazette is offering each person who qualifies to run in the upcoming municipal elections the chance to introduce themselves to the voters.

This opportunity allows for each candidate to have a free, one-time only, announcement in the Gazette.
As part of this announcement, the Gazette will print a story, along with a high resolution photograph, that shares information about the candidate with our readers.
This information should include full name, age, place of residence, biographical information, education background, work experience and/or any other experience that would make him or her a good candidate for public office, as well as names of immediate family members.
This free announcement must be run within three weeks of the date on which the candidate qualifies.  Should a person qualify on the last day of qualifying, March 8, he or she must submit an announcement within one week.  
All announcements must be run by mid-March.
