Eighty percent of respondents in a recent Beacon poll regarding a recent Beacon no-polling policy refused to respond to the poll.
Four out of five readers surveyed chose the option “I refuse to respond in any manner.”
It is uncertain if additional participants felt the same way and simply refused to respond.
The no-poll policy was established in April after a Beacon staff member was put on paid leave in the wake of an ineffective poll. The employee has been reinstated and “things are better now,” the person said.
The no-poll policy was lifted last week, based on results of an internal survey conducted by an independent polling firm.
