Community is our business

Dear Valued Readers:

Thank you for continuing to subscribe to our daily newsletter. My genuine hope is that this letter finds you and your loved ones healthy and secure.

Our journalists are dedicated to local, community news like no other newspaper group in Arizona. Community is our business. We strive to connect our communities through city and school news coverage, business and people profiles and events in your local neighborhoods.

We hope you appreciate our efforts and would consider a donation to continue our journalistic mission. Visit yourvalley.creativecirclemedia.com/donate/.

We are blessed to have dedicated readers like you, but not every news media organization has been fortunate. Since 2004, the United States has lost one-fourth, 2,100 of its newspapers. Everywhere are communities, large and small, with no coverage of local government, schools, or healthcare. A community without a devoted newspaper loses social capital and connections between citizens and civic groups.

It is individuals like you who help keep our presses running and allow this little company with big ideas to continue offering our readers credible, nonpartisan reporting from our journalists and an experienced network of correspondents who know Arizona better than anyone else.

We would appreciate if you would share this daily newsletter with your friends. Please have them visit yourvalley.net/free-newsletters/.

If you love what we do, you may want to consider purchasing a digital subscription to the Daily Independent at YourValley.net. For less than 20 cents a day, you’ll have all access to our Phoenix-area market journalism. Visit yourvalley.creativecirclemedia.com/subscribe/.

We hope you’ll join our growing list of Independent Insiders by making a voluntary donation today! Everything we do is aimed at reinforcing and strengthening the bonds that connect our readers and our communities.

Our unique structure is designed to maintain our independence. We’re owned by a nonprofit trust. There are no shareholders, no dividends are paid, and all after-tax profits are reinvested in our journalistic mission.

We rely on a combination of business advertising, reader contributions and subscriptions, grants and sponsorships to support our journalism. Contributors donate solely to support local journalism, and do not influence our journalism.

While we always appreciate your suggestions, our Independent Insiders support us because they share our belief that good journalism must be independent, civil and unbiased. Please email your suggestions personally to me at cbisson@iniusa.org.

Thank you, take care and happy perusing!

Charlene Bisson, Publisher, Independent Newsmedia
