Pennsylvania's Primary Election is May 21.
Tube City Community Media Inc. doesn't endorse candidates or knowingly accept political advertising, but we again will make available this space as a free, public outlet for local political candidates.
Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Any candidate for a municipal (city, borough or township mayor, commissioner, council, etc.) or school board office in the McKeesport Area, Duquesne, East Allegheny, South Allegheny or West Mifflin Area school districts may submit a candidate profile for publication.
Deadline is Tuesday, May 7.
Profiles received after the deadline will be published at the editor's option, time permitting.
Please email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop it off labeled "Tube City Online" or "Tube City Almanac" in the lobby of 409 Walnut St., McKeesport, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. You also may write to Tube City Almanac, P.O. Box 94, McKeesport, PA 15134.
Phone calls and Facebook messages will not be accepted.
Eligible communities are the cities of Duquesne and McKeesport; boroughs of Dravosburg, East McKeesport, Glassport, Liberty, Lincoln, Port Vue, Versailles, Wall, West Mifflin, White Oak, Wilmerding, and Whitaker; and North Versailles and South Versailles townships.
Candidate profiles may include biographical information, statements on various issues, and website URLs or other public contact information.
Personal attacks on other candidates and commercial endorsements or other irrelevant information are not permitted. In case of any dispute over content, the decision of the editor is final.
Candidate profiles should be 400 words or less. Tube City Online reserves the right to edit for style with or without notice, at the editor's option.
Candidate profiles should include name, party affiliation, age, and community of residence, along with address and phone number of each candidate so that we can verify the information. (Address and phone number will not be published. An email address alone is not acceptable.)
Candidates running as a "team" or "slate" may submit one profile for all members of the team with the OK of each member of the team.
Entries longer than 400 words are subject to editing without prior notice. These guidelines are subject to change without notice.
