To our readers —
As we close in on the end of another year, we’d like to take a moment to thank you for your support of our publication and let you know that we will continue to strive for the quality and integrity you expect from us.
To that end:
— We will continue to live up to our high ethical standards.
— We will continue to provide you with facts and not conjecture.
— We will continue to put our writers’ names on our stories so you know we stand behind our reporting.
— We will continue to bring you a well-rounded variety of stories, including town meeting coverage, investigative reports and human interest features so you have the full picture of what’s happening in town.
— We will continue to seek out fairness and accuracy in our reporting, and not publish one-sided, biased, unverified stories.
— We will continue to live up to our name — Independent — and report on worthwhile news no matter the subject or topic.
— We will continue to carry ourselves with professionalism and class.
It’s an interesting time for journalism in this country, with many major and local media outlets struggling. We’re fortunate that we live in a community that appreciates quality journalism, which has played a big role in allowing us to succeed. We are proud of our small but dedicated staff, which consists of award-winning writers who studied journalism and have decades of experience in the field. Every town deserves a reputable newspaper, and we’re honored to be that source for Hopkinton.
Best wishes for the holiday season, and for a healthy and enjoyable 2024.
— The staff at the Hopkinton Independent
