You cannot count on local media anymore to get the whole story. In this dark period of dwindling newsrooms, we need citizen journalists to fill the gap. We need people, like the Political Junkie, who are willing to spend time, energy and money to make sure you get the whole story.
But we need your help to make this work. Here’s how:
1. Share our stories with friends, families and co-workers.
2. Link to this blog so that other people can discover the good work we are trying to do.
3. Send us news tips, anonymously or otherwise, to this email address.
and most importantly,
4. Donate. Your financial contribution gives us the resources to dig deeper with public records requests, travel to get hard-to-reach stories, and purchase better equipment to bring you pictures, video and audio. Plus, your contribution, no matter how small, is downright inspirational!
Thank you for your commitment to citizen journalism and interest in local politics
Thank you for all of your support.
