We Want to Hear From You: The Citizen Adopts a New Policy on Reader Submissions

Print More

The Bedford Citizen’s mission statement includes a goal to be “a virtual civil meeting place for matters of importance to those who live or work in Bedford, Massachusetts.”

To better support that goal, The Citizen’s board adopted a revised submission policy on February 3, 2021. The revised policy covers

  • Articles or press releases
  • Calendar listings and event publicity
  • Comments on articles posted in The Citizen
  • Letters to the Editor

In addition, the Board appointed Meredith McCulloch to be its Opinion Editor with assistance from Bob Dorer and Dot Bergin.  They will review and approve Letters to the Editor based on The Citizen’s policy guidelines.
