The Union Democrat welcomes letters for publication on any subject as long as they are tasteful and responsible and are signed with the full name of the writer (including a phone number and address, for verification purposes only).

Letters should not exceed 300 words.

A maximum of one letter per writer can be published every two weeks.

The newspaper reserves the right to edit for brevity, clarity, taste and style. Please, no business thank-yous, business endorsements or poetry. We will not publish consumer complaints against businesses or personal attacks.

Letters may be emailed to letters@uniondemocrat.com; mailed to 84 S. Washington St., Sonora 95370; faxed to 209-532-6451; or delivered in person.
