Sun Editorial: Our promise to the community

We will provide leadership that contributes to a better Deptford. Our pages and website will be used to honor the past, report on the present and plan for the future.

We will reflect the values and priorities of the Deptford community. We will be the primary information and advertising source for Deptford residents and businesses, both in print and online.

We will listen and respond to our readers. We will deliver fair and balanced news coverage of events important to Deptford residents. We will strive to put every issue into proper context, to deliver all of the pertinent information and to ensure all sides of an issue are heard. We will provide comprehensive coverage of the community. We will not dwell on the “negative.” Nor will we ignore a public issue simply because it is controversial. We will make a special effort to publish news about accomplishments that often are overlooked by the media. We will publish an editorial page that is open to diverse viewpoints. We will emphasize issues, not personalities, and fact, not rumor. We seek a civil, yet vigorous, discussion that seeks solutions to the issues confronting the community.

We will be editorial advocates for children, a vital local economy, preservation of Deptford’s unique history, a safe community and honest and ethical leadership.

We will be an active, involved and caring corporate citizen.

We will honor the relationships we have with those who do business with us and constantly strive to ensure their investment in us is justified.
