Our Policy
The Boerne Star welcomes letters on any public issue.

To be considered for publication, must contain the writer’s name, address and phone number. We DO NOT publish anonymous letters. Addresses and telephone numbers are for verification purposes only and will not be published. Name of writer and city of residence will be published. Letters should be short and concise, long enough only to make your point.

Priority will be given to letters 300 words or less that concern local topics and written by people who’ve not published a letter in the last 30 days.

We reserve the right to edit all letters for style and content and to refuse letters that would be objectionable to readers. We also reserve the right not to publish mass-produced letters created for special interest or political campaigns.

The Boerne Star does not accept letters to the editor urging voters to vote for or against candidates in local elections. Endorsements should be displayed in political advertising. In light of this policy, we reserve the right to reject or edit letters for references to candidates and whether or not they should be elected. Call 249-2441 with questions regarding the submission of letters to the editor for publication or e-mail news@boernestar.com.
