24 days just isn’t enough. I can write a blogpost every day for a whole year about all the great bloggers across the country keeping an eye on government.
So today I am thanking all local political bloggers who keep writing day in and day out.
The decline in local newspapers and investigative journalism left a gap that local bloggers are helping to fill. Even though investigative journalism is still essential, it is good to know that there are hundreds of people willing to keep tabs on what power is doing.
As Sunlight starts to move into the states these bloggers are the leaders on the ground who will bring their communities and states into the sun.
So thank you local bloggers and transparency advocates! I hope everyone has a very happy and healthy New Year!
