Co-publisher and General Counsel

We currently have 39 more active Members than we had at the close of our Charter (1st) year less than three months ago. New Members are joining and charter Members are renewing.

Advertisers are getting the idea, too. Business owners on the Hill are realizing that only advertising with the Town Crier has the benefit of keeping a newspaper on our Hill — a local information source that confirms the accuracy of information before it’s printed, either on paper or online — a community watchdog that covers the eight local public entities funded by our taxes and that make decisions and recommendations as to how to spend more of our tax dollars.

If you haven’t renewed yet, but you need to — then please do. If you neglected to timely renew and went expired, you can still rejoin as a 2nd-year new Member and carry on supporting your community’s newspaper. (If you haven’t received a renewal notice, your expiration date is listed above your name on your newspaper label.)

To all of you, congratulations! Thanks to you, the Membership model is working — keeping a newspaper going for our community.
