To all candidates:
Let us at The Brazil Times be the first to congratulate you on your decision to serve the Clay County community.
By doing so, you have shown you have true dedication, love for the community and hope to make Clay County better in the long run.
The Brazil Times has plans to announce the candidacies of all running in county-wide, and school board elections. All we ask is that you let us know.
We have set a deadline for prospective candidates of 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26. Contact us via telephone at 446-2216, Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those running may also fax at 812-446-0938. But please call the office to make sure we received the notice.
The Brazil Times also plans to preview all contested county-wide, and school board races prior to the May 4 primary and again prior to the 2010 election in November.
Another key element to get the word out about your campaign would be using The Brazil Times to advertise and share information with county residents. The Brazil Times is published on Mondays, and Wednesday through Saturday.
Those running for office may also advertise at www.thebraziltimes.com, seven days a week.
Candidates interested in advertising should contact Cathy Fessenmeyer or John Adamson at The Times' office, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Again, thank you for the dedication you have shown and your desire to serve Clay County and its citizens.
Good luck in May.
