PUBLISHING CRITERIA FOR ARTICLES RECEIVED FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Mission: TPFYI is intent on presenting polite public discourse and opinion regarding issues of relevance to the affairs of the town of Tuxedo and the village of Tuxedo Park. However, TPFYI reserves the right to publish in full, edit, abbreviate or dismiss any submissions at its sole discretion, without specifying its reason for so doing.
Qualification: The underlying issue must be relevant and / or important to the town and village and beyond that, the wider community. It must be factual to present and future circumstances and meet the tests of substantiation & verification. Factual correctness is paramount and any submission must add to the knowledge base of the issue under consideration. Individual “opinions” and “attitudes” will be excluded unless they meet the stated criteria.
Editorial Right: Any script submitted for publication must not be inflammatory, abusive, defamatory, libelous or otherwise derogatory of any person or entity. It may be contentious but must be respectful to all and any of the involved parties.
Geography: TPFYI is willing to receive comments, letters and / or editorials from residents of the Tuxedo community and from residents in areas contiguous to the town and village. It will also consider scripts from others who can offer value to the relevant issue.
Archiving: TPFYI would normally expect to archive any published script not later than 2-4 weeks after publication.
