EDITORIAL: Thank you, readers, for sharing Your Voice


[Editor’s note: In an earlier version, several names of letter writers were inadvertently left off at the end. The entire list appears below.]



You really had a lot on your mind in 2020.

And you weren’t afraid to share your thoughts with your fellow citizens.

As your local community newspaper, The Gazette is more than happy to provide our readers with a forum to do just that through our Letters to the Editor section, which we call “Your Voice.”

In 2020, we shared more reader viewpoints than ever before.

Last year, we published 2,189 letters from 1,290 individual writers.

By comparison, we published 1,691 letters from 1,044 writers in 2019 and 1,540 letters from 975 writers in 2018.

The large number of letters last year reflected not only the tremendous amount of news on which to comment, but also people’s desire to offer their opinions on it.

Obviously, there was the presidential election and the coronavirus crisis dominating the national news in 2020.

But reader comments to Your Voice weren’t limited to just those topics.

Throughout the year, we heard from readers about many state and local issues.

For instance, you shared your voice about local elections for everything from school board seats to library budgets.

You commented about the actions of the governor and the state Legislature. You commented on the condition of your roads and the quality of your local government.

You said nice things about the what’s going on in your community.

You gave kudos and criticism for the care you or a family member received at a local medical facility.

You lobbied for legislation and for solutions to local problems.

How long are they going to allow trucks to hit that bridge in Glenville, you asked. When are they going to figure out how to remove snow in a timely manner after a big storm?

You even had a word or two to say about The Gazette. You shared your opinions about our editorials, our columns, our news coverage and our policies and practices.

We’re glad to publish the criticisms along with the compliments.

In many cases, you shared your voice to educate your fellow citizens, giving them information or perspective they might not have gotten from another source.

Public officials read the letters section because they learn what their constituents are thinking and they get an idea what the citizens’ priorities are.

Most important of all, you exchanged ideas with one another, helping promote discussion of vital topics that might lead to a better understanding of the issues and of one another.

And that may help build better communities.

As we’ve demonstrated by the pure number of letters we’ve been able to publish this year, we do our best to provide a welcoming place for all viewpoints.

No letter is ever rejected because of someone’s political point of view or if it disagrees with our editorial position.

Disagreement is healthy and educational.

Yes we do reject some letters.

Letters that contain blatantly false information, libelous statements, offensive language and personal attacks will get red-flagged.

When possible, the writer of a rejected letter will often be given an opportunity to fix or shorten it in order to make it acceptable.

We want people to feel comfortable sharing their opinions. While writers should expect someone to share an alternative point of view to their own, they shouldn’t have to feel personally attacked.

Most of the time, letters are rejected simply because they exceed our 250-word limit for regular letters and 200-word limit for letters related specifically to elections.

While we’d love to give readers more space to say what they want to say, we do have to limit individual letter length in order to give as many people an opportunity to have their letters published in a timely manner as possible.

Writers are also limited to one letter every 30 days so that one writer doesn’t dominate the conversation and to give others a chance.

We try to get letters in the paper within a week to 10 days of confirmation.

As for how to submit them, we prefer letters that are submitted via our website and email. That way, we don’t have to spend time typing them, and it speeds up the verification process. But we still gladly accept letters sent by regular mail and even by fax.

Information on where to send letters is published at the bottom of each day’s Opinion page, including today’s.

If you haven’t written before, we hope you’ll consider writing a letter or two this year.

And if you have written in the past, we hope you’ll continue to share your voice with us and your fellow citizens.

Once again, we thank each and every one of you for writing.
