The Other Paper regularly accepts press releases about South Burlington businesses, associations, organizations or residents. The release must not be advertorial in nature. The South Burlington connection should be specifically mentioned and significant to the press release.
We welcome your input, and encourage reader participation in an effort to stimulate reflection and discussion about all things South Burlington. Diverse and varied opinions are welcomed in response to public policy, community issues and concerns, and relevant topics of interest. In the interest of healthy civil discourse, stay on topic, keep it simple, and focus on your point respectfully. To encourage an open exchange of ideas, it is our intent to publish all letters, although that is not always possible. We reserve the right to reject letters or edit for clarity, brevity, good taste and accuracy, and to prevent libel.
Deadline is Monday at 12 p.m. for the current week’s issue. South Burlington residents, business owners, and organizations may submit for consideration, only one letter each 30 days. Letters must be less than 350 words. All submissions must be signed and include the writer’s street address and telephone number for verification purposes (addresses and phone numbers will not be published).
