The Hennessey Clipper

Presidential election and more at stake

Hennessey Clipper Staff Effort

Hennessey is a rural wheat/cattle/oil community with 2,000 residents. The Clipper helped boost the voter record after an extensive coverage of county commissioner, school and town board meetings and voter information. The Clipper went above and beyond to inform the community of the candidates’ platforms by sending a questionnaire about pertinent topics within the area to all candidates in statewide and district races in the primary and general elections. The result was an eight-page tab that not only told people what was on the ballot, but urged voters to check out candidate information in the voter guide, and pressed the issue of exercising their right to vote.
