Quick question… What do you think of our coverage of local politics?

When we moved from being a monthly lifestyle print magazine to this daily digital format, we thought we’d not be getting involved in news or politics. We’ve certainly tried that — but with the issues we’ve had around public safety, homeless hotels and struggling small businesses, that’s proven hard to do.

Are we getting it right? Should we put more resources into local political coverage — or do we keep the focus on keeping you connected, updated, and upbeat? Hit reply…

We do still like to tell the stories of people, even if they are politicians. So today we are happy to report on the role that Senator Brad Hoylman took in the Pfizer vaccine trial after his family contracted the virus.
