With the filing period for candidates for local, district and state offices for the March 2020 political party primaries and the non-partisan judicial general election beginning Nov. 4, The Commercial will accept announcements from candidates who will be filing for available offices until Nov. 3.

Announcements and a photograph must be emailed to The Commercial at pbcnews@pbcommercial.com and will appear in the order that they are received and will be run once at no charge. The Commercial will not run announcements for candidate headquarters openings or fund raising events. Candidates must contact the Advertising Department if they wish publicity for those events.

All announcements are subject to editing but whenever possible will appear the way the candidate submits them.

No free announcements will be accepted after the filing period begins.
