Why do you read MLTnews? What one thing would you change, if you could? Those were among the questions I posed to all of you in a reader recent survey, and the responses ran the gamut, from pats on the back to very helpful suggestions to honest criticism.
As I reviewed the survey responses, it’s clear there is a lot that you like about MLTnews. But it’s also clear that you believe we should do more. More follow-up stories on important issues. More news about businesses opening and closing. More stories about neighborhoods. A deeper dive into the politics behind decisions that are made at the local level.
Our operations are 100-percent funded through advertisers, and we are so grateful for the support of those businesses and organizations that you see on our website. Thanks to their support, we sit through weekly city council meetings, so you don’t have to. We report about crimes and fires. We describe the achievements of our high school athletes, our middle school musicians, our elementary school scholars. We provide a calendar of events so you can track what is going on in the community.
But I sincerely believe that we could be doing so much more. If you value our work, would you consider a regular weekly, monthly or yearly donation — $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford?
We’ve made it easy. Just visit the link on the upper right of the home page, which you can use with an existing PayPal account or simply run as a credit or debit card.
Thank you for your support.
