Candidates for local and state offices will be available to discuss their campaigns and current community issues in Ross Township next week.

Ross residents can meet candidates at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Sieb's Banquet Facility, 3382 Babcock Boulevard in Ross Township.

The Ross Township Democratic Committee also is seeking individuals interested in filling positions as Democratic committeepersons.

Petitions for positions as a committeepersons require 10 valid signatures and can be notarized at the March 4 Meet the Candidates Night.

Committeepersons work to get candidates elected by canvassing neighborhoods, working the polls, attending committee meetings and make endorsements.

Each of Ross' nine wards has four districts. Each district has a male and female committeeperson.

Fifty of the seats are filled, and 22 currently are vacant.

All seats are up for election in the May 20 primary. Each committeeperson is elected to a four-year term.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
