We believe the expertise from our contributors will enhance the quality of our news organization, provide timely writing on relevant issues, widen the conversation in our community on public affairs, and diversify available perspectives.
Many are familiar voices as regular opinion-editorial contributors to the newspaper, but others are new to the scene for us. We were heartened by their willingness to participate regularly as bloggers, and by the range of leadership we're able to launch with, and thank them for committing the energy to the success of Community of Interest.
Some of their work, and some of the comments about it, will be reverse-published into the newspaper to strengthen our local capabilities. We are open to many others joining us --- there are many gaps to fill --- and will be augmenting the roster in the time ahead.
Comments and suggestions welcome.
