A message to candidates, readers

As we approach the May 20 primary election, the Whitehall-Coplay Press, the Northampton Press and the Catasauqua Press, in the interest of fairness, will halt the publication of columns by local government officials and letters to the editor submitted by those running for office.

The last week for publication of columns by local government officials will be the April 17 edition.

We will, of course, continue to cover the local races, in news stories generated by our own reporters.
