The Cooperstown Crier welcomes letters of public interest from readers and makes every effort to provide a lively forum for a variety of opinions.
Letters should be no more than 300 words. There is a minimum 30-day period between publication of letters from the same author.
Letters to the editor will be considered for publication by Cooperstown Crier editors based on community interest, topicality and variety of subject matter. Letters that are libelous, too narrow in focus or that make unverifiable accusations of behavior will not be published. Letters may be edited for grammar and punctuation. If aware of instances of organized letter-writing campaigns, the editors will choose a limited representative number of letters to be published. Form letters and those not exclusive to The Cooperstown Crier will not knowingly be published. Letters by Daily Star or Cooperstown Crier employees will not be printed.
