Framingham Election Policy 2012
With the Nov. 6 election less than two weeks away, we are re-publishing our election policy.
Framingham Patch will cover the November election, but will not be endorsing any candidate.
Framingham Patch is a community site. We encourage participation. Candidates may join the conversation, but with a few rules.
Candidates and their campaigns may blog through Oct. 30 on Framingham Patch.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Letters to the editor will be accepted during the campaign period from candidates. Letters must be signed and include a phone number and e-mail address for verification. Letters must be 350 words or less.
No more than one letter to the editor, per candidate, per week. Letter writers may only write about a specific issue up to three times, during the election period.
The last day letters to the editor will be accepted is Monday, Oct. 29. The final day letters will be published is Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Letters to the editor, in support of a candidate, will be allowed. The same deadline applies.
POSTS ON FRAMINGHAM.PATCH.COM: Candidates (and their immediate family members) may comment on all articles, blog and post on the home page of Framingham Patch, up until a week before the election. Comments will be deleted, if posted after midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
As of Oct. 31, 2012 only articles (including blogs) written by Patch staff or assigned writers will be allowed on the election.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to Editor Susan Petroni at 508-20-5597 or firstname.lastname@example.org
