How do I write a letter to the editor?

  • Personalize your letter and provide examples on how your business will be affected by a particular issue.
  • Keep your comments short and focused. A succinct comment will have more impact than a longer one.
  • Limit your letter to roughly 200 words or less.
  • Include your name, address and telephone number.
  • Send your letter to multiple newspapers, this will increase the chances of publication.
  • Send a copy to your elected officials (i.e., City Councilor, County Commissioner, State Legislator and/or Federal Legislator).
  • And, please copy the Loveland Chamber of Commerce. (info@lovealnd.org / 5400 Stone Creek Circle, Loveland, CO 80538)
