"Local journalism is the heart of a community: How the City Council tackles issues, how the school board votes on new policies, what impacts nonprofits are making across Beaverton. I enjoy being able to amplify the good and uncover the bad, an essential function in any democracy. Local journalism means that I get to attend the hourslong meetings — so you don't have to — and add valuable context to what those in power say."
