Why limit Viewpoints in The Tribune to incumbents?

Michael Byrd, a broker and one of the candidates running for 4th District supervisor on the San Luis Obispo County Board in the June primary election, asked recently if we would publish a Viewpoint on a pledge for candidates to run clean, positive and respectful campaigns. We declined, saying that although we do allow Viewpoints from incumbents, we limit other candidates to letter-length submissions.
