TIPS FOR WRITING A GOOD LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Change comes from taking action. One action anyone can take is to write a letter the editor to voice one’s concern or praise about issues facing our community. Effective letters are concise and their message is clear and easy to understand.

1. Keep it short (under 250 words) and to the point; otherwise the message will get lost.
2. If possible, refer to past articles or editorials in the paper. Quoting a source is a good way to back up your statement. Always make sure that someone who may not be as familiar as you are with the issue will understand your message. 
3. Make sure your statements are accurate.
4. Check spelling and grammar. Having another person read it always helps.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN
To submit a letter to the editor of our local paper, go online to the Pueblo Chieftain at http://www.chieftain.com/ and locate the pull down menu for “Opinion.” Opening “Submit a Letter” will provide you the submission form.
Letters must not exceed 250 words, and include your name, address, and telephone number for authentication. The Chieftain reserves the right to edit letters to length, taste, and clarity.

HELP IS AVAILABLE
You may submit a draft of your letter to the Pueblo Democratic Party for editing and fact-checking, if you like!
