It’s getting to the end of the month, and this is the last time you’ll hear from us asking to support our first annual fundraising drive. In our last ask, we challenged the community to get us to 100 donors, and you delivered! We now have over 100 donors to STB, which is both inspiring and humbling. So thank you.
This week we dropped our city council endorsements. It was a crowded field this year, surely due in part to district elections. For the first time, we sat and met with most of the major candidates in person, to hear first hand their priorities for the myriad transit and land use issues facing the city. It was a revealing week for us, with some truly impressive candidates in districts where we did not expect them.
We want to do more of this kind of in-person, first-hand reporting and analysis in the year to come, and we’ll get there with your help. We’re almost 2/3 of the way to our goal, and we can make it there by July 31 with your help. Will 50 more readers step up and get us over the hump? We’re counting on you. Thanks in advance.
