Over the past 22 years, Historic City News has published the recommendations of our volunteer Editorial Review Board, this being the 11th election year. Aided in part by research completed by our staff reporter, Lou Anthony, the Board faced some interesting contests for their consideration this year.
The publisher is independent of this process and recommendations are not affected by political advertising.
Generally, the members apply their knowledge, observations, and personal experience with the candidates at issue to Historic City News‘ vision to editorially advocate for open meetings, open records, and transparency in our government. The Board decides how best to reach our mission to hold public officials accountable to the public through our election recommendations.
