The editorial board of Westside Weekly welcomes input from its readers on issues of local interest, but we encourage all letter writers to adhere to certain basic codes of conduct.Chief among those tenets is the avoidance of personal attacks on non-elected officials. The public decisions of school board members and municipal representatives are open to scrutiny and criticism, but private citizens will not be subjected to personal ridicule. Letters can be mailed or sent firstname.lastname@example.org. They should be no longer than 250 words.
