Letter to the Editor

*A red asterisk denotes a required field and must be filled in.

The Beacon welcomes letters to the editor on topics of general interest.
All letters must bear the name and town of residence of the writer and include his or her daytime telephone number and email address (if available). The telephone number and email address will be used for verification and clarification, if necessary, and will not be published.
Letters submitted by organizations must include the signature of their leader or another officer.
Non-Brunswick County residents are asked to state their connection to this area in their letters.
Public officials who submit a letter to the editor must clarify whether they are submitting it on behalf of the organization with which they are affiliated.
Letters should be brief and to the point, not exceeding 300 words.
In all cases, the managing editor reserves the right to edit letters for space, grammar, style, clarity and content. The managing editor also reserves the right to reject any letter — in whole or in part — including those determined potentially libelous.
Only one letter per writer will be considered for publication per month.
Mass-produced or form letters will not be published.
Unsigned or anonymous letters will be rejected.
All letters should be received by noon Monday for consideration in each week’s edition.
