What we do
The editorial board and opinion section staff are independent from the news-gathering side of our organization. Through our staff-written editorials, we take positions on important issues affecting our readership, from pension reform to protecting our region’s unique natural resources to transportation. One of our most important duties is making endorsements of candidates and measures in local, state and national elections. The editorials are unsigned because, while written by one or more members of our staff, they represent the point of view of our news organization’s management.
In order to take informed positions, we meet frequently with government, community and business leaders on important issues affecting our cities, region and state. During elections, we meet with candidates for office and the proponents and opponents of ballot initiatives and then make recommendations to voters.
