Submit a Letter To The Editor
Have an opinion? Send a letter. We do our best to get different opinions in the paper. The wider the variety of ideas, the better readers are served. A healthy letters page in the local newspaper indicates an engaged community. A difference of opinion expressed through civil discourse indicates a robust, thinking democracy. Letters should be no more than 400 words and should be submitted by 12 p.m. on the Monday before publication for The Other Paper, and by 5 p.m. for The Citizen and Shelburne News. Email letters to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We accept letters from residents and business owners within each newspaper’s coverage area. Please include your name, street address, email address and phone number so we can verify that you wrote the letter. We keep contacts confidential. Letters should not be libelous or slanderous, and will be accepted and printed at the discretion of the editor. All points should be supported with facts. Letters regarding a candidate or ballot item/issue will not be printed the week before an election. Questions? Call 802-864-6670 or 802-985-3091.
