2022 Elections

Endorsing the Propositions

It has been this newspaper’s stance to not endorse candidates for public office since our beginnings as an online-only news source in 2013. Our small staff does not yet allow for the editorial distance from the candidates we are covering for us to have an objective editorial board.
