Candidate Endorsement Policy

Town Election 2017 Word Cloud

As we head into election season, eHop would like to remind our readers of our candidate endorsement policy:

The primary mission of eHop is community education on funding and policy issues pertaining to the Town of Hopkinton, Massachusetts including the Hopkinton Public Schools. Hence, eHop will strive to provide voters with accurate and detailed information on candidates running for state and local office, with a focus on each candidate’s position on both town and school-related issues.

It is eHop policy not to endorse candidates for public office. eHop board members are at liberty, however, to endorse candidates independently.

When eHop collects information from candidates for voter education purposes, eHop may add editorial comments to clarify candidate claims or statements that eHop deems to be deceptive or misleading, or that require further explanation.

On our Blog/Website:

Any eHop Board Member running for elected office in a contested race will not write or edit any blogs regarding the office for which they are running, including but not limited to our annual Candidate Q&A.

On Facebook:

In addition, due to eHop policy not to endorse candidates for public office, any endorsements for specific candidates will be deleted from our Facebook page.

Candidates are welcome to email a candidate statement or a link to their campaign website, which we will be happy to post to our website along with info about all the other candidates. Please send to kristywilladsen@ehop01748.org.

eHop relies heavily on Facebook and Twitter for posting various news articles when we don’t have time to write something up in more detail for our website, especially during the summer months. Recognizing that not everyone is on Facebook or Twitter, we recently set-up a LinkedIn organization page. So if you are not on other social media, we encourage you to follow us on LinkedIn, where we plan to share similar information to what we currently share on Twitter.
