Letters to the Editor
Letters to the Editor are a way for Lamorinda residents to further a community conversation about local issues. Letters should be a maximum of 350 words long, and should include the full name, address and phone number of the writer for verification purposes. Published letters will include the writer’s name and city/town of residence. Letters must be accurate, cannot involve personal attacks on people or businesses, cannot be defamatory, and cannot include charges without verifiable information to be considered for publication. Email your letter to letters@lamorindaweekly.com. Lamorinda Weekly is published every other Wednesday; the deadline for letters is midnight the preceding Friday.

Public Forum
If you have significant knowledge about an issue facing Lamorinda or one of its cities that requires more than the 350 words to which we must limit Letters to the Editor, don’t despair! You can submit your letter to our Public Forum section – just email your letter to letters@lamorindaweekly.com and let us know you’d like to be considered for the Public Forum. The deadline for Forum is one week prior to the issue date.
