Other years around primary time, we have invited candidates into our offices to make their cases for why they should get our endorsement.

This spring we are not endorsing in the primary election, and instead of candidates we want to talk to you.

Starting at noon on Thursday and continuing June 14 and 21, we are bringing back an old Press Herald tradition — the public editorial board meeting.

We’d like to hear your thoughts on our decision not to endorse candidates in this year’s primary, but we’d also like to hear a lot more.

Should we go back to endorsing candidates in the fall? Is there some other form of opinion journalism that would be more helpful to voters who are evaluating the candidates?

And beyond elections, what would you like to see in these opinion pages? Is there anything that you would like to change? Is there anything you hope doesn’t change?

If you can make one of the meetings, feel free to come by the 5th floor of One City Center on one of the next three Thursdays.

If those times don’t work for you but you have something to say, drop an email to Editorial Page Editor Greg Kesich, [email protected], and write “Editorial Ideas” in the subject line.

Technology is changing the way we communicate and people are accessing information in ways that would have been unimaginable even a few years ago.

There is no reason to believe that a newspaper’s opinion pages are immune from these changes, but there is also no reason to change just for change’s sake.

As we look ahead to November’s election, you can cast your vote on these pages right now.
