Letters must contain the author's full name, address, legal signature (when a letter is submitted as a hard copy), jurisdiction of residence and daytime and evening phone numbers.The Progress prints a selection of letters received.
All letters are subject to editing.
Letters should be the original work of the signatory.
It is our policy to list references/citations/documentation for quoted material or claims of fact that might be unfamiliar to the general public. I’ve noted the areas below for which we would need references. For efficiency, these should be easily accessible (such as a website that goes directly to the relevant page), and for accuracy they should come from reliable and neutral sources.
On Saturdays The Progress publishes letters about good deeds done in our communities or people who are otherwise worthy of recognition. Letters should list a total of no more than five individuals, businesses, clubs or other groups to be thanked or otherwise acknowledged. This includes formally named organizations as well as informal groups such as volunteers,members, supporters, etc. etc.
The Daily Progress lists the affiliations of writers of letters to the editor when the writers are officially speaking for the organization they represent. Affiliations are not listed when the writers are expressing a personal opinion not officially shared by the organization.
Please send letters to The Daily Progress, Letters, PO Box 9030, Charlottesville, VA 22906; or email Letters@DailyProgress.com.
To facilitate fact-checking, letters making claims of fact must provide references and documentation for those claims; weblinks are encouraged. References and documentation should come from neutral sources. Documentation will not count toward the 350-word limit.
Letters citing how candidates have voted on previous issues should reference the pertinent piece of legislation and date of action, either in the body of the letter or as a footnote. For state or national legislation, the letter should give the bill number and year of adoption or rejection; for localities, the letter should name the ordinance and date of adoption or rejection.
