Newspapers are vital to a vibrant and active democracy.

They keep officials accountable for their actions, shine a spotlight on how local governments spend taxpayer dollars and keep the public informed. On the other hand, they highlight the everyday lives of residents, feature the newest businesses opening in their community and build trust with the public.
